Titus as Caesar RIC II V1563
Titus as Caesar under Vespasian. AR Denarius. Antioch Mint 72-73 A.D. (2.86g, 17.2mm, 6h). Obv: T CAES IMP VESP PON TR POT, laureate and draped bust right. Rev: Titus standing right in quadriga with branch and sceptre. RIC II 1563, RPC II 1935, RSC 395.

Commemorating the Judea Capta Triumphal parade, celebrated in 71 AD., this is one of the more rarely issued eastern denari of the Flavian reign. Typical of Antioch, this coin has a high relief portrait. This also is my only example of a draped bust.
