Vespasian RIC II 0023
Vespasian 69-79 A.D. AR Denarius. (4.32 g/17mm). Rome Mint, 70 Jan.-June AD. Obv: [IMP CA]ESAR VES[PA]SIANVS AVG, laureate head right. Rev: [COS IT]ER [T]R POT, Mars advancing right with spear and Aquila. RIC II 39, RSC 87.

The characteristic portrait of Vespasian recognizable on his later coinage is not yet established on this early example. Vespasian did not arrive in Rome from Egypt until later in 70 A.D., probably October, so his features may have been unknown to the die engravers.
