Vespasian As, Legio X Countermark
Vespasian 69-79 A.D. AE As. Rome Mint. 74 A.D. (8.45g, 25.5mm, 6h). Obv: IMP CAESAR VESP AVG COS V CENS, laureate head right. Rev: SC in field, Spes standing let with flower. RIC II 730, RCV 2361.

The interest in this worn As is the Legio X, Fretensis, Countermark. Legio X was levied by Augustus in 40/41B.C. to fight in the Civil War. Later, Legio X was under the command of Vespasian and played a central role during the Jewish rebellion. Following the suppression of the rebellion under Titus, Legio X was garrisoned in Jerusalem.
