During this time, the Flavians were issuing coins of a consciously antiquarian reverse designs, and this naval type mimics a type used by Marc Antony and may signify the victorious Admiral. Vespasian had the same reverse type at this time as Augustus. The date on this type canít be narrowed because only the consular date is given.
