Vespasian RIC II 0938
Vespasian. 69-79 A.D. AR Denarius. Rome Mint 77-78 A.D. (3.45g, 19.5m, 6h). Obv: IMP CAESAR VESPASIANVS AVG, laureate head left. Rev: COS VIII, Mars standing left with spear and trophy. RIC II 938, BMC 202, RSC 126.

This is example has a common reverse, but the less common left facing portrait. This is also example of Vespasians use of antiquarian designs as this reverse copies one of L. Valerius Flaccus. With a full flan, and an excellent obverse legend, the scratch on the obverse and wear on the reverse to do not detract too much from this coin.
