Titus RIC II 0129
Titus 79-81 A.D. AR Denarius. Rome Mint, Jan. 1-June 30, 80 A.D.. (3.31g, 18.9mm, 6h). Obv: IMP TITVS CAES VESPASIAN AVG P M, laureate head left. Rev: TR P IX IMP XV COS VIII, P P, tripod with fillets, dolphin above. RIC II 129, RSC 323.

This type was minted the same year as the inauguration of the Flavian Amphitheatre and Titusí pulvinaria series. It also echoes a type of Vitellius which had a Raven under the tripod. Some of Titusí coins have ravens on the tripod, but not this example. This is another of the less common left facing portraits.
