Titus RIC II 0120
Titus. 79-81 A.D. Rome Mint, 80 A.D. 1 Jan.-30 June. (3.36g, 17.8mm, 6h). Obv: IMP TITVS CAES VESPASIAN AVG P M, laureate head left. Rev: TRP IX IMP XV COS VIII PP, Seat draped; above winged thunderbolt. RIC II 120. BMC 56. RSC 315.

Although on a tight flan, this specimen maintains a decent weight, and most of its legends. The legends are sharper than the picture shows. This is part of the pulvinaria series introduced by Titus in 80 A.D. A unique series without precedent in Roman coinage, the types could be linked to the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 A.D, or, more likely, the inauguration of the Flavian Colosseum where seats for honored guests would be provided.
