Titus RIC II 0103
Titus 79-81A.D. AR Denarius. Rome mint. . Jan.-July 80A.D. (3.15g, 18.7m, 7h). Obv: IMP TITVS CɅES VESPɅSIɅN ɅVG PM, laureate head l. Rev: TRP IX IMP XV COS VIII P P, trophy with female seated l. in attitude of morning, and male captive seated r., hands bound behind back. RIC II 103 (R2) RSC 307.

This coin may serve to both symbolize a victory in Britain, and as a reminder of the Jewish victory. Titus issued a number of trophy-captive types during his short reign.

This specimen is worn, but has decent centering and complete legends. The left facing head is much rarer that the right, so I could not resist.
