Vespasian RIC II 1404
Vespasian. 69-79 A.D. Ephesus Mint, 69-70 A.D. (2.97g, 17.4m, 6h). Obv: IMP CAES VESPAS AVG, laureate head right. Rev: LIBERI IMP AVG VESPAS, Titus and Domitian veiled, togate, standing front, heads left, each with patera, sideways ɸ in exergue. RIC II 1404 (R).

The reverse inscription roughly translates as the children of the Emperor Augustus Vespasian. Vespasian acted early to establish his sons as his successors as shown by this example minted in his first year as Emperor. Initially attributed to Philipi, this series, characterized by the sideways ɸ, has been attributed to Ephesus by recent scholarship.
