Titus RIC II 0109
Titus 79-81 A.D. AR Denarius. Rome Mint. 1 Jan.-30 June 80 A.D. (2.87g, 17.9m, 6h). Obv: IMP TITVS CAES VESPASIAN AVG PM, laureate head left. Rev: TRP IX IMP XV COS VIII PP, curule chair, wreath above. RIC II 109 (R),

With the more scarce left facing head, this is one of a new series of pulvinaria types, thought to be related to the inauguration of the Flavian Amphitheater. This coin is dated before 1 July, as Titus took TRP X on that date. The largest output of Titusí denarii fell in the first six months of 80 A.D, thought perhaps to be due to the great fire in Rome.
