Vespasian RIC II 1414
Vespasian. 69-79 A.D. AR Denarius. Ephesus Mint, 70 A.D. (2.64g, 17.3mm, 7h). Obv: IMP CAESAR VESPAS AVG COS II TR PPP, laureate head right. Rev: AVG and symbol in oak wreath. RIC II 1414 (R3).

When the RIC II was updated, this type was only known by one example. Since, a couple of others have surfaced including another at CNG, and one in a private collection displayed in a Forum gallery to which mine is a reverse die match. This could be the fourth known specimen of this type. It pays to know your symbols in these series as this was listed by the seller as RIC 1408, a more common issue.
