Titus as Caesar RIC 706
AR Denarius, 3.50g
Rome Mint, 74 AD (Vespasian)
Obv: T CAESAR IMP VESPASIAN; Head of Titus, laureate, bearded, r.
Rev: PONTIF TR P COS III; Caduceus, winged
RIC 706 (R). BMC 151. RSC 160. BNC 124.

A rare type that took a bit of patience for me to find. This specimen is cut in a fine style with a lot of the detail surviving the intervening 2000 years...even the beard can clearly be seen.
