Titus as Caesar RIC 949
AR Denarius, 3.08g
Rome mint, 77-78 AD (Vespasian)
RIC 949 (C). BMC 222. RSC 66.
Obv: T CAESAR IMP VESPASIANVS; Head of Titus, laureate, bearded, r.
Rev: COS VI; Mars stg. l., with spear and trophy; and to r., corn ear

Yet another reverse that is shared with Vespasian. Although the type with Mars and corn ear is listed in RIC as "common", this is the first example I've seen in trade. The condition is not the greatest but beggars can't be choosers. Needless to say the thrill of receiving this denarius far outweighs the eye appeal!
