Vespasian RIC II 1058
Vespasian. 69-79 A.D. AR Denarius. Rome Mint 79, to June 24 A.D. (3.37g, 17.2mm, 6h). Obv: IMP CAESAR VESPASIANVS AVG, laureate head right. Rev: TR POT X COS VIIII; Capricorn l.; below, globe. RIC II 1058, BMC 251, RSC 554. Ex Forum.

A worn, but well centered, example of a common denarius from Vespasianís last year. The Capricorn reverse was a copy from an issue of Augustus and was in keeping with the Flaviansí frequent use of antiquarian designs. The same reverse was used by Titus the same year following his fatherís death.
