Titus as Caesar RIC 948
AR Denarius, 2.87g
Rome Mint, 77-78 AD (Vespasian)
RIC 948 (C). BMC 221. RSC 65.
Obv: T CAESAR IMP VESPASIANVS; Head of Titus, laureate, bearded, r.
Rev: COS VI; Mars stg. l., with spear and trophy

Another reverse of Titus' which copies a Vespasian reverse. Both father and son shared the same types, one would think it was to strengthen the fact that Titus was the joint ruler and heir. Domitian on the other hand never shared the same types as Vespasian or Titus, highlighting his junior status.

An excellent denarius with a good portrait. Nice metal too.
