Vespasian RIC II 0776
Vespasian. 69-79A.D. Rome Mint. 75 A.D. (3.38g, 19.7m, 6h). Obv: IMP CAESAR VESPASIANVS AVG, laureate head right. Rev: PON MAX TR P COS VI, Victory stg. l. on cista mystica flanked by snakes. RIC II 776 (R), BMC 169, RSC 369. Ex CNG.

The silver issues of Ephesus seem to have ended in 74 A.D., and this type may have been minted in Rome for circulation in the east. This was a new type for the Flavians, but again, a resurrection type of older coins. This example is worn, but a wonderfully full flan and full weight as well.
