Vespasian Hemidrachm, victory seated
Vespasian. 69-79 A.D. AR Hemidrachm. Caesarea, Cappadocia. (1.58 g, 14.69 mm, 0 o). Obv: AVTOKP KAICAP OVECPACIANOC CEBA, laureate head right. Rev: Victory seated right upon a globe, holding a wreath. RPC 1660, Metcalf 18. Syd 95.

This undated hemidrach of Cappadocia demonstrates the typical high relief portrait of that mint. Although undated, RPC speculates the majority of these undated hemidrachms were minted in 76-77 A.D. Nike/Victory on the globe could signify Vespasianís victory over the Roman world.
