Vespasian RIC II 0702
Vespasian 69-79 A.D. AR Denarius. Rome Mint 74 A.D. (3.44g, 19.2m, 6h). Obv: IMP CAESAR VESPASIANVS AVG, laureate head right. REV: PON MAX TRP COS V, Vespasian std. r. on curule chair, with scepter and branch. RIC II 702, BMC 136, RSC 364.

Along with the winged caduceus, this reverse type was one of the most common reverses for the year. Introduced the previous year, it echoes Tiberiusí Livia type. This is example is reasonably centered, maintains full legends on the obverse, and is a solid example of the type.
