Titus as Caesar RIC II V1076
Titus as Caesar. 69-79A.D. AR Denarius. Rome Mint. 79 A.D.. Obv: [T] CAESAR IMP VESPASIANVS, laureate head of Titus right. Rev: TR POT VIII COS VII, captive kneeling right below trophy. RIC II V1076.

Usually billed as commemorating the Roman victory in Judaea and thus a Judaea Capta type, this reverse was actually used on a Republican reverse by C. Memmius (Crawford 427/1) and could just be a Flavian restoration type common during Vespasian's reign.
