Vespasian RIC II 0943
Vespasian 69-79 A.D. AR Denarius. Rome Mint. 77-78 A.D. (3.03 g, 18.8m, 6h). Obv: IMP CAESAR VESPASIANVS AVG, laureate head right. Rev: COS VIII in exergue, Oxen, two, yoked left. RIC II 943.

This denarius was part of an agricultural issue of Vespasian. The oxen reverse closely resembles a type issued by Octavian and earlier Republican denarius of L. Cassius Caecianus.
