Titus RIC II 0132
Titus. 79-81 A.D. AR Denarius. Rome Mint. 80 A.D. 1 Jan.-30 June. (2.89g, 18.5mm, 6h). Obv: IMP TITVS CAES VESPASIAN AVG PM, Laureate head right. Rev: TR P IX IMP XV COS VIII PP, tripod with fillets; above dolphin; above tripod two ravens, l. and r. and a wreath under the dolphin. RIC II 132 (R2). Ex. CNG.

Some variations of this type lack the ravens on top of the tripod (T128), but not this example. The larges output of Titusí precious metal coinage took place during this period of the first six months of 80 A.D. Not the best specimin of Titus, but this is example is more scarce than the one lacking the ravens.

This is RIC 132 with ravens. 128 is the variant without them.
