Vespasian RIC II 0019
Vespasian. 69-79 A.D. Rome Mint. 70 A.D. Jan-June. (3.25g, 17.9m, 6h). Obv: IMP CAESAR VESPASIANVS AVG, laureate head r. Rev: COS ITER FORT RED, Fortuna stg. l., r. hand on prow, with cornucopia. RIC II 19, BMC 7, RSC 84. Ex. Harry N. Sneh Collection.

This type thanks Fortuna for a successful return from Egypt where Vespasian stayed for some months after he was declared Emperor at the end of 69 A.D. A worn, but well centered example of an early denarius of Vespasian with a full weight and complete legends.
