Vespasian RIC II 0027
Vespasian 69-79 A.D. AR Denarius. Rome Mint. Jan-June 70 A.D. (3.20g, 19.1mm, 6h). Obv: IMP CAESAR VESPASIANVS AVG, laureate head right. Rev: COS ITER TR POT, Pax standing left with branch and caduceus. RIC II 27.

The inward facing lettering changed in 73 A.D.. The early denarii of Vespasian fail to depict the characteristic portrait of Vespasian seen on later coinage. Some coins from this time period bear portrait more reminiscent of Vitellius than Vespasian.

Very Vitellius like. Also, the Pax featured standing here is not as common as the seated Pax from the same issue. Nice example!
