Vespasian RIC II 0703
Vespasian 69-79 A.D. AR Denarius. Rome Mint. 74 A.D. (3.23g. 18.6m, 6h). Obv: IMP CAESAR VESPASIANVS AVG, laureate head right. Rev: PON MAX TR P COS V, Caduceus, winged. RIC II 703.

The caduceus is a characteristic of Mercury and associated with heralds and commerce. This coin is much nicer than my photograph show with nice dark toning.
