Vespasian RIC-982
AR Denarius, 3.42g
Rome Mint, 77-78 AD
RIC 982 (C2). BMC 212. RSC 213.
Obv: CAESAR VESPASIANVS AVG; Head of Vespasian, laureate, r.
Rev: IMP XIX in ex.; Sow left, with three young.
Acquired from Tom Cederlind, December 2007.

The type was issued as part of an agrarian series of denarii that Vespasian minted in 77-77 AD.

I don't know why I put off getting this type with a right facing portrait for so long. A solid example of a fairly well known type, with a good portrait and a fine style on the reverse.
