Titus as Caesar RIC-1562
AR Denarius, 3.26g
Antioch Mint, 72-73 AD (Vespasian)
Obv: T CAES IMP VESP PON TR POT; Bust of Titus, laureate, draped, bearded, r.
Rev: Palm tree: to l., Titus stg. r. with spear and parazonium, foot on helmet; to r., Judaea std. r.
RIC 1562 (C). BMC 518. RSC 392. RPC 1934 (11 spec.). BNC 322.
Acquired from WCNC, March 2008.

A Judaea Capta type which copies a reverse from Rome.

Though rated as common in the RIC, it is a fairly difficult reverse type to find. I like the draped busts of this issue.
