Vespasian RIC II 1060
Vespasian. 69-79 A.D. AR Denarius. Rome Mint 79, to June 24 A.D. (3.18g, 18.5mm, 6h). Obv: IMP CAESAR VESPASIANVS AVG, laureate head left. Rev: TR POT X COS VIIII; Capricorn l.; below, globe. RIC II 1060 (R), BMC, RSC 556.

While worn, this specimen with the left facing portrait is well centered. The Capricorn reverse was a copy from an issue of Augustus and was in keeping with the Flavians frequent use of antiquarian designs. The same reverse was used by Titus the same year following his fathers death.
