Titus as Caesar RIC 951
AR Denarius, 3.20g
Rome Mint, 77-78 AD (Vespasian)
RIC 951 (R). BMC 225. RSC 67.
Obv: T CAESAR IMP VESPASIANVS; Head of Titus, laureate, bearded, r.
Rev: COS VI in exergue; Two oxen, yoked, l.
Acquired from Calgary Coin, May 2008.

This reverse type was shared both by Vespasian and Titus (as most precious metal types were) and is part of the agrarian themed denarii issued around the time. Like many denarii of the period the type is a copy of an earlier Republican one. Rated rare by the RIC.

I quite like the style of this one.
