Titus RIC-124b
AR Denarius, 3.43g
Rome mint, 80 AD
Obv: IMP TITVS CAES VESPASIAN AVG P M; Head of Titus, laureate, bearded, r.
Rev: TR P IX IMP XV COS VIII P P; Seat, draped; above, triangular frame with three palmettes
RIC 124b (C2). BMC 61. RSC 313a. BNC 49.

The triangular frame on square seat pulvinaria type comes in three different variants: RIC 124a with five palmettes, RIC 124b with three palmettes (the rarest of the three variants), and RIC 124c with nine palmettes. This 124b is a reverse die match with the RIC 125 plate coin, a left facing portrait variant of the type.

In good style with a neat and fine portrait.
