Titus RIC II 0034
Titus. 79-81 A.D. AR Denarius. Rome Mint. 79 July after 1 July. (3.13g, 19.9m, 6h). Obv: IMP TITVS CAES VESPASIAN AVG PM, laureate head right. Rev: TR P VIIII IMP XIIII COS VII P P, Venus standing right leaning on column, with helmet and spear. RIC II 34.

Upon Vespasianís death, Titusí accession was never in doubt. Titus had several precious metal issues in in 79 A.D. RIC II has a footnote that a die variety exists with knobs on both ends instead of a spear, and this example appears to me to have knobs as do all the examples on wildwinds.
