Vespasian RIC II 1406
Vespasian 69-79 A.D. AR Denarius. Ephesus Mint, 69-70 A.D.. (3.16g, 17.7m, 7h). Obv: IMP CAES VESPAS AVG, laureate head right. Rev: PACI AVGVSTAE, Victory advancing left with wreath and palm, sideways ɸ in lower left filed. RIC II 1406 (R), RPC 812, RSC 280.

Early denarius minted in the East, possibly before Mucianus secured Rome. Initially attributed to Philipi, this series, characterized by the sideways ɸ, has been attributed to Ephesus by recent scholarship. The lettering is irregular compared with Roman mint coins, and the portrait lacks the distinctive look of Vespasian of later issues.
