Vespasian RIC II 0964 Legend Error
Vespasian. 69-79 A.D. AR Denarius. Rome Mint. 77-78 A.D. (3.45g, 17.5mm, 6h). Obv: CAESAR VESPASIANVS AVS, laureate head right. Rev: AANNONA AVG, Annona std. l. with sack of corn ears. RIC II 964; RSC 28.

Annona is the goddess or personification of the grain supply in Rome. This example has an interesting obverse legend error of AVS instead of AVG, the second in my collection to save the same letter mix up (V980). The obverse is well centered and has a good portrait of Vespasian as well.
