    Wow that's interesting. I had no idea shaking hands was invented back then but I just looked it up.

    Shaking hands was invented in 5th century B.C. in Greece to show that neither person is carrying a weapon.

    You learn something new every day :)

    Fantastic coin, Quite a general, certainly gave the Veneti trouble during the Gallic wars.

    The man who led Caesar to slaughter. :mask:

    Also, don't mix up Decimus Junius Brutus Albinus, with Marcus Junius Brutus. Two seperate, but important Romans
