Vespasian RIC-984 Mule
AR Denarius, 2.80g
Rome Mint, 77-78 AD
RIC 984 (R2). BMC p.62, 21. RSC 210.
Obv: CAESAR VESPASIANVS AVG; Head of Vespasian, laureate, r.
Rev: IMP XIII in exergue; Sow l., with three piglets
Ex Harry N. Sneh Collection.

A rare mule combing an obverse of Vespasian and a reverse of Titus as Caesar. The reverse type was issued simultaneously for both, so one can understand how they could easily have gotten mixed up.

Not in the best condition, but the legends are fairly clear and the strike is reasonably centered.
