He seems to have been the first to place his own portrait on coins (while still alive, which he wasn't less than two months later). The debate how many of his coins were actually struck after his murder is ongoing.
during his life in Feb/March 44 BC (?)
Brutus and others seem to have quickly taken over the new fashion....
