Titus RIC II 0104
Titus. 79-81 A.D. AR Denarius. Rome Mint. 80 A.D. 1 Jan.-30 June. (3.36g, 18.3mm, 6h). Obv: IMP TITVS CAES VESPASIAN AVG P M, laureate head right. Rev: TR P IX IMP XV COS VIII P P, Captives, two, back to back, seated on either side of trophy, man on l. woman on r. RIC II 104 (R).

The rare aspect of this type (compared with the more common Titus 102) is that the male captive is on the left, and the female is on the right. While a small difference, it is significant in terms of scarcity. This is the only example Iíve seen in trade of this type, and with a full weight, well centered on its flan, and full legends, it is in good condition as well.
