Vespasian RIC-686
AR Denarius, 3.21g
Rome Mint, 74 AD
RIC 686 (R). BMC 146. RSC 366.
Obv: IMP CAESAR VESP AVG; Head of Vespasian, laureate, r.
Rev: PONTIF MAXIM; Winged Caduceus, up-right
Ex Berk 148, 29 March 2006, lot 252.

The BMCRE states that this reverse is to be associated with the censorship.

A good example of mid-period Vespasian coinage. A reverse that is hard to find with the PONTIF MAXIM legend.
