Vespasian RIC II 0520
Vespasian. 69-79 A.D. AR Denarius. Rome Mint. 73 A.D. (3.15g, 20.2m, 6h). Obv: IMP CAES VESP AVG PM COS IIII CEN, laureate head right. Rev: FIDES [PVBL], hands clasped over caduceus, two poppies, and two corn ears. RIC II 520, BMC 86, RSC 164.

Dated to 73 A.D. by Vespasians fourth consulship, and the addition of the censorship title in that year. 73 A.D. also saw the change in legend direction from clockwise to anticlockwise on the obverse of Flavian coinage. This coin perhaps alludes to public protection and concord in commerce and agriculture.
