Vespasian RIC II 1477
Vespasian 69-79 A.D. AR Denarius, Uncertain Mint, possibly Ephesus 76 A.D. (3.35g, 18.6m, 12h). Obv: IMP CAESAR VESPASIANVS AVG, laureate head right, o under neck. Rev: PON MAX TR P COS VII, winged caduceus. RIC II 1477 (R). RPC 1453.

An unknown mint produced these coins with an o on the obverse, probably in Asia Minor, and maybe Ephesus. Only denarii were produced in this manner. The coins were limited to 76 A.D. This type, as many in this series copies an earlier Roman reverse, but the quality of the engraving is lacking, even from earlier issues of Ephesus. RIC II p. 43-44.
