Titus RIC II 0122
Titus 79-81 A.D. AR Denarius. Rome Mint. Jan. 1-June 30, 80 A.D. (3.20g, 18.4mm, 5h). Obv: IMP TITVS CɅES VESPɅSIɅN ɅVG PM, laureate head right. Rev: [TR P] IX IMP XV COS VIII P P, seat draped; above, semicircular frame with three crescents. RIC II 122, RSC 313.

This is part of the pulvinaria (sacred couches of the gods) series introduced by Titus in 80 A.D. A unique series without precedent in Roman coinage, the types could be linked to the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 A.D, or the inauguration of the Flavian Colosseum where seats for honored guests would be provided.
