AR Denarius, 3.43g
Rome mint, 79 AD
Obv: IMP CAESAR VESPASIANVS AVG; Head of Vespasian, laureate, right.
Rev: TR POT X COS VIIII; Ceres seated left, with corn ears and poppy and torch
RIC 1062 (C). BMC 244. RSC 550. BNC 213.
Acquired from Amphora Coins, January 2008.

A most vexing coin to locate, ironically the much rarer left facing example came to me first. Rated Common in the RIC.

A nice example of a late period Vespasian denarius. Good portrait.
