Vespasian RIC II 0021
Vespasian. 69-79 A.D. AR Denarius. Rome Mint, 70-Jan-June A.D. (3.08g, 19m, 5h). Obv: IMP CAESAR VESPASIANVS AVG, laureate head right. Rev: COS ITER TRPOT, Aequitas standing left with scales and rod. RIC II 21, BMC 17, RSC 94a.

Issued in Vespasians first year, this example has a more typical Vespasian portrait than others of this era which tend to favor Vitellius.
As an attorney, I love Aequitas which was the Roman personification of justice and equality. The scales persist as a representation of the same in the legal community today.
Worn, but with full legends and complete devices, this is a decent example of an early type.
