Vespasian RIC-684
AR Denarius, 3.19g
Rome mint, 74 AD
RIC 684 (C). BMC 137. RSC 361.
Obv: IMP CAESAR VESP AVG; Head of Vespasian, laureate, r.
Rev: PON MAX TR P COS V; Caduceus, winged

A common coin found not so commonly! There is another caduceus type from this series with the same obverse legend and PONTIF MAXIM on the reverse. Both types from the series are fairly rare.

A decent coin in acceptable condition.
