Vespasian RIC II 0939
Vespasian 69-79 A.D. AR Denarius. Rome Mint 77-78 A.D. (3.14g, 17.8mm, 6h). Obv: IMP CAESAR VESPASIANVS AVG, laureate head right. Rev: COS VIII, Mars standing left with spear and trophy, corn ear to right. RIC II 939.

In 77-78 A.D., the Flavians minted a number of reverse designs with consciously antiquarian designs. This type, with Mars, is one of the most common of the period, and copies a Republican denarii of L. Valerius Flaccus. This is a nice coin with even toning, a high relief portrait, and full legends.

Now that is a most expressive portrait. It looks like he means business!
