Vespasian RIC II T0359b
Vespasian memorial under Titus. AR Denarius. Rome Mint 80-81 A.D. (3.37g, 19.1m, 5h). Obv: DIVVS AVGVSTVS VESPASIANVS, laureate head right. Obv: Column mounted with shield and topped by urn, flanked by two laurels, in field EX, on shield SC. RIC II T359b.

In the catalog, RIC assigns one number to this type, Titus 359. However, a footnote explains that the EX is commonly on the sides of the column, but less frequently on either side of the urn. In the plates, both are shown as assigned a and b.

Iíve been looking for this type with the EX on either side of the urn for a long time, and finally came across one.
