Titus RIC II 0049
Titus 79-81 A.D. AR Denarius. Rome Mint. 79 A.D, after July 1. (3.2 g, 18.35mm, 6h). Obv: IMP TITVS CAES VESPASIAN AVG PM, laureate head right. Rev: TRP VIIII IMP XV COS VII PP, captive, hands bound behind back, kneeling right below trophy. RIC II 49, RSC 295, BMC 31.

Coins with Titus as Caesar under Vespasian with this trophy/captive type were issued earlier in 79 A.D., before Vespasianís death on June 23, 79 A.D. (RIC II Vespasian 1076). When Titus became Augustus, the type continued memorializing his part in the Judean victory during the First Jewish Revolt.
