Titus as Caesar. AR Denarius. Rome Mint. (3.4g, 19.81mm, 6h). Obv: T CAESAR IMP VESPASIAN, laureate head right. Reverse: COS V, eagle on cippus, head left, thunderbolt in claws. RIC V861, Sear 2438, RSC 59(a). Ex David Hendin.

The thunderbolt is clear on this example, but not on others. RIC II describes this eagle as standing on a “garlanded” alter, but the ornamentation is not present on this example. This coin was issued in several variations in legend and facing.
