Vespasian RIC II 1120
Vespasian 69-79 A.D. AR Denarius. Lugdunum (Lyon) Mint. 71 A.D. (3.10g, 17.3mm, 5h). Obv: IMP CAESAR VEAPASIANVS AVG TR P, laureate head right. Rev: IVDAEA DEVICTA; Palm tree; to l.m Judaea stg. l., hands bound in front. RIC II 1120; BMC 388; RSC 243.

Celebrating the Flavians greatest victory, this Judea Capta type is unique to the Lugdunum mint. While listed as common, all of the issues from Lugdunum are very difficult to find in trade. Compared to the mint at Rome, the portrait relief is high and the lettering is irregular. Roman silver production was moved to Lugdunum after the assassination of Julius Caesar and returned to Rome perhaps during Caligulas reign. Very few denarii were minted thereafter.
