Gaius Antonius


Silver Denarius

Brother of Marc Antony
Murdered 43 BC by Brutus

Gaius Antonius was the brother of Marc Antony and Lucius Antonius. Like his two brothers, Gaius was also a devoted follower of Julius Caesar. Marc Antony gave Gaius the government of Macedonia to administer following the death of Julius Caesar. He unsuccessfully defended Curicta, an island in the Adriatic Sea, in 49 BC. In 44 BC, Gaius came under siege by Brutus in Apollonia during the Second Civil War. He was captured in 43 BC by Brutus, who had him executed, some say in revenge for the execution of Cicero.
