Vespasian RIC-801
AR Quinarius, 1.61g
Rome mint, 75(?) AD
RIC 801 (R2). BMC 284. RSC 616a.
Obv: IMP CAESAR VESPASIANVS AVG; Head of Vespasian, laureate, r.
Rev: VICTORIA AVGVSTI; Victory std. l., with wreath and palm
Acquired from Aegean Numismatics, November 2016.

An undated quinarius, part of a large issue of quinarii most likely struck in 75. Keeping with tradition, Vespasian employed two Victory types (advancing and seated) for the reverses. They are all quite rare. Those with AVGVSTI are rarer than those with AVGVST.

Well centred and in fine metal.
