Anachronisms 

Caesar refers to his nose as "rather long" and "a Roman nose," but the idea of a "Roman nose" was not introduced until almost 150 years later, when the Emperor Hadrian erected statues of his favorite, Antinous, throughout the Empire (where many of the people had never seen a Roman), and Antinous's long nose was taken as typical of Romans (even though Antinous was a Greek).

Crew or equipment visible 

In the opening scene, very strong multiple shadows in different directions give away the locations of very close stage lights.

In Caesar's first scene, he appears under a night sky full of clouds and bright stars. The clouds don't move at all and the stars shine bright through them, giving away the fact it's a painted backdrop with lights. Also, very strong shadows exist giving away the use of stage lighting.
