A bullet inscribed with Julius Caesar's name has been unearthed in Spain and is presumed to have been used in a slingshot by the emperor's troops.

According to archaeologists, the bullet was probably used for propaganda purposes.

The artifact, known by experts as "glans inscripta", measures 4.5 x 2 centimeters and weighs 71 grams, and was made using a mold into which molten lead was poured.

On one side, an inscription reads "IPSCA" (probably an unknown Spanish town), while the other side reads "CAES" for Caesar.

Experts say the discovery could prove that Native Spaniards supported Caesar during the civil war.
