Vespasian 69-79 A.D. AR Denarius. Rome Mint. 74 A.D. (3.34 g, 20.32 mm, 6h). Obv: IMP CAESAR VESPASIANVS AVG, laureate head right. Rev: PON MAX TR P COS V, winged caduceus. RIC II 703, RSC 362, Sear 2299. Ex David Hendin.

The Caduceus entailed a staff, here with a pointed tip, entwined with snakes, and is often winged. The Caduceus represented trade and commerce patronized by Mercury. Alternately, according to Van Meter, the Caduceus was associated with safety, speed, and the herald.
