Vespasian RIC II 0966
Vespasian. 69-79 A.D. AR Denarius. Rome Mint, 77-78 A.D. (3.25g, 19.2m, 6h). Obv: CAESAR VESPASIANVS AVG, laureate head left. Rev: ANNONA AVG, Annona standing left with stack of corn ears. RIC II 966 (R), BMC 298, RSC 30.

Minted in conjunction with an agricultural series, Annona served as an Imperial propaganda tool reflecting the emperors ability to care for his people by ensuring the grain supply.

Annona is one of the most common of the reverses from this series, but not with the left facing portrait, which as always, are much less frequent.
