Vespasian RIC II 0774
Vespasian 69-79 A.D. AR Denarius. Rome Mint. 75 A.D. (3.01, 19.8mm, 6h) Obv: r to l out- IMP CAESAR VESPASIANVS AVG, laureate head right. Rev: PON MAX TR P COS VI, Securitas seated left, head resting on raised arm. RIC I 774, RSC 367, Sear 2302.

Securitas was the goddess of security, especially security of the Roman Empire. The Pax reverse issued this same year was issued in large quantities, and this reverse is often confused with Pax, and in fact, this was sold as a Pax reverse by an experienced Vcoins dealer who missed the proper attribution. This is a nice, well centered, coin with complete legends on a nice flan.

It wasn't me that had the good eye. I'm still working on that. David pointed this one out for me. Thanks David!
