A rare early type of Titus as Caesar from Antioch copying a reverse of Vespasian. Peace and harmony is the theme on display here.

Aside from the off-center obverse, a decent coin from a mint well known for quality control issues at the time.

Interesting draped bust on this example, and quite an interesting reverse as well.
