Titus RIC II 0116
Titus 79-81 A.D. AR Denarius. Rome Mint 1 Jan. ĖJune 30 A.D. ( g, mm, 6h). Obv: IMP TITUS CAES VESPASIAN AVG P M, laureate head left. Rev: TR P IX IMP XV COS VIII P P, elephant, cuirassed, standing left. RIC 116, Ex Incitatus Coins.

Issued contemporaneously with the pulvinaria series, this type lends credence to the theory those coins were minted to commemorate the opening of the Colosseum. Although rated as common by RIC, I donít see as many of the left facing coins. This one has complete devices and legends although shows some wear.
