Vespasian RIC II 1465
Vespasian. 69-79 A.D. AR Denarius. . Ephesus Mint. 74 A.D. (3.19g, 17.7mm, 0h). Obv: [IMP CAE]SAR VESPAS AVG COS V [TR P P P], laureate head right. Rev: [P]ACI AVGVSTAE (from high right); Victory advancing right; with wreath and palm; at lower l, annulet, at lower r., star. RIC II 1465 (R2).

Due to the death, disruption, and devastation of the Civil War, each of emperors, after Nero, during the Year of Four Emperors used Peace as a theme on their coinage as a theme to try and assure the Romans the carnage was over. The coins from Ephesus with the star and annulet marks are all scarce. While off center on the obverse, this specimen has a well centered reverse. This example also has an interesting 0h die axis.
