Vespasian RIC II T0359a
Vespasian memorial under Titus. AR Denarius. Rome Mint 80-81 A.D. (3.2 g./17mm. 5 h). Obv: DIVVS AVGVSTVS VESPASIANVS, laureate head right. Obv: Column mounted with shield and topped by urn, flanked by two laurels, in field EX, on shield SC. RIC II T359a.

One of a series of 4 posthumous denarii struck in Rome by Titus following the deification of Vespasian in 80 A.D.. The EX SC rarely seen on the reverse of precious metal coinage during the empire likely refers to the deification honor bestowed by the Senate.
