Cold War Veteran
In this scenario when Julius Caesar is captured by the pirates for ransom. They after a few hours get the feeling that if he is left alive they might die. So they cut him down with swords and throw his body overboard. They then do the smart thing of getting the fuck out of dodge and set sail for what will become Portugal. A few days later a merchant ship comes upon Caesar's floating corpse and take his body back to Rome. How does this turn of events affect the Roman Republic and it's future.
