Julia Titi, Augusta c. 79 - 89 A.D.

Julia Titi was the daughter of the Emperor Titus, and although married, she had an affair with her uncle Domitian. In 83 A.D., Domitian divorced his wife and lived openly with her. It has been said that she died because Domitian forced her to have an abortion but modern research indicates this allegation is false.

Although this coin does not have a visible copper core, we believe it coin is an ancient plated counterfeit. Their are very tiny coppery areas, and, more telling, small lumps in the obverse right field that are typical on plated coins.
