Vespasian RIC II 1340
Vespasian. 69-79 A.D. AR Denarius. Uncertain Spanish Mint. 69-70 A.D. (3.39g, 18.9mm, 0h). Obv: IMP CAESAR VESPASIANVS [AVG], laureate head left. Rev: VICTORIA IMP VESPASIANI, Victory standing left on globe, with wreath and palm. RIC II 1340 (R), BMC 362, RSC 630.

In the original RIC and BMCRE, this series was assigned to Tarraco, but the coins have distinctive characteristics that separate them from that issue. In the revised RIC, they are assigned to an uncertain Spanish mint. This attribution is ďfluidĒ however pending further research and potential die link studies.
