Titus RIC II 0089
Titus. 79-81 A.D. AR Denarius. Rome Mint 79-80 A.D. (3.13g, 19.5m, 6h). Obv: IMP TITVS CAES VESPASIAN AVG PM, laureate head right. Rev: BONVS EVENTVS AVGVSTI, Bonus Eventus standing left with patera, corn ears, and poppies. RIC II 89, BMC 106, RSC 25.

This example is in great condition for my collection with complete and clear legends. Bonus Eventus was the divine personification of good outcome originally associated with agriculture, but later broadened. An early coin of Vespasian used this reverse (1375) from an unknown mint, and the reverse was among the earliest issues for Galba as well.
