Titus RIC II 0031
Titus. 79-81 A.D. AR Denarius. Rome Mint 79 A.D., after July 1. (3.38g, 18.7mm, 6h). Obv: IMP TITVS CAES VESPASIAN AVG PM, laureate head left. Rev: TRP VIIII IMP XIIII COS VII PP, Trophy; below, captive kneeling right. RIC II 31 (R2).

This reverse type was common for Titus and was a carryover from Titus as Caesar. This type is dated after 1, July as that is the date Titus took TRP VIIII. The left facing portrait on this issue is very scarce, so it is odd to note that this example is not from the same dies as the RIC plate coin or the example shown at wildwinds. This example, while worn, is well centered and retains complete legends and devices.
