Titus RIC 89
AR Denarius, 3.31g
Rome Mint, 79 - 80 AD
Obv: IMP TITVS CAES VESPASIAN AVG PM; Head of Titus, laureate, bearded, r.
Rev: BONVS EVEN-TVS AVGVSTI; Bonus Eventus, a naked youth, standing l., holding patera in extended r. hand and corn-ears and poppy in l.
RIC 89 (C). BMC 106. RSC 25. BNC 83.
Acquired from Apollo Numismatics, January 2006.

An undated reverse type with the meaning "good outcome". The BMCRE alludes that this may follow in a Neronian tradition.

A very difficult reverse type to find...I spent the best part of a year looking for a VF or better example in good style. This one fits the bill.
