Titus as Caesar RIC II V1560
Titus as Caesar. 69-79 A.D. AR Denarius. Antioch Mint 72-73 A.D. (3.33g, 17mm, 6h). Obv: T CAES IMP VESP PON TR POT, laureate bust right, draped. Rev: CONCORDIA AVGVSTI, Concordia std. left, with patera and cornucopiae. RIC II V1560 (R2), BMC V514, RSC 44. Ex Harry N. Sneh. Gemini X, January, 2013, resold later CNG esale 308.

Although slightly off center, this example has a nice bust (as opposed to head because of the draping), and very little wear. This is a scarce issue for Titus from the Antioch Mint. Concordia, representing harmony, was a common theme of the Flavians following the instability of The Year of Four Emperors, 69 A.D.
