Titus as Caesar RIC II V0974
Titus as Caesar 69-79 A.D. AR Denarius. Rome Mint. 77-78 A.D. (3.45g, 18.2mm, 7h.) Obv: T CAESAR VESPASIANVS, laureate head r. Rev: CERES AVGVST; Ceres stg. l., with corn ears and poppy and scepter. RIC II V974, BMC V321, RSC31.

Ceres was the Roman goddess associated with agriculture and grain crops. This type, mirroring one contemporaneously issued by Vespasian, came with a series echoing agrarian themes.

While the picture may not depict it, the toning on this specimen is quite nice.
