Vespasian RIC II 0686
Vespasian. 69-79 A.D. AR Denarius. Rome Mint, 74 A.D. (3.36g, 19.5mm, 6h). Obv: IMP CAESAR VESP AVG, laureate head right. Rev: PONTIF MAXIM, Caduceus, winged. RIC II 686 (R), BMC 146, RSC 366.

Although undated, this series falls into the dated issues of 74 A.D. (COS V) with the obverse legend used. Although the caduceus is a new type for Vespasian in this year, it was previously used by Augustus. While worn, this specimen has full legends.
