Vespasian RIC II 1066
Vespasian. 69-79 A.D. AR Denarius. Rome Mint. (3.01g, 18.7mm, 6 hr.) Obv: IMP CAESAR VESPASIANVS AVG, laureate head left. Rev: TR POT X COX VIIII, statue of radiate male figure (sol?) with spear and parazonium, on rostral column. RIC II 1066 (R) . Ex CNG.

As Vespasianís death came in June 24, 79 A.D., this is among his last issue. A rostral column is a monumental column typically to commemorate a great military victory. The obverse has a complete legend. But for a soft strike from 9:00 until 11:00, the reverse is almost as nice. Not much wear on the highest points of either side, this coin is in good condition.
