Titus RIC II 0119
Titus. 79-81 A.D. AR Denarius. Rome Mint, 80, 1 Jan.-30 June A.D. (3.3 g, 18.07 mm, 6 o) Obv: IMP TITVS CɅES VESPɅSIɅN ɅVG PM, laureate head right. Rev: TRP IX IMP XV COS VIII PP, winged thunderbolt on draped table or chair. RIC II 119, Sear 2513, BMC 51, RSC 316. Ex David Hendin.

This is a part of a pulvinaria (supplication to the gods) series by Titus in 80 A.D.. This could be to celebrate the opening of the Flavian Amphitheater, or, in the alternative, it could be to supplicate the gods after the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 A.D.
