Vespasian RIC II T0364
Vespasian memorial under Titus. AR denarius. Rome Mint, 80-81 A.D. (3.45 g, 21.7mm, 6h). Obv: DIVVS AVGVSTVS VESPASIANVS, laureate head right. Rev: EX SC in fields, Victory, draped, stepping l., placing shield on trophy, mourning captive Jewess seated beneath. RIC T364, BMCRE 112, RSC 144. Ex David Hendin.

Posthumous issue under Titus, this type celebrates Vespasians deification, and commemorates his most important victory, that over the Jews during the First Revolt which raised Vespasian to the purple. This example is minted on a notably wide flan.
