Vespasian RIC II 0850
Vespasian 69-79 A.D. AR Denarius. 76 A.D. Rome Mint. (3.23g, 20.0mm, 6h). Obv: IMP CAESAR VESPASIANVS AVG, laureate head left. Obv: IOVIS CVSTOS, Jupiter standing facing with patera over altar and scepter. RIC II 850 (R2). RSC 554; BMC 279.

This Jupiter reverse was a new type for 76 A.D., and can be dated by obverse die links to dated issues of the year. This left facing example is scarce and is an upgrade for me of a well worn example Ive had for some time.
