Titus as Caesar RIC II V1486
Titus as Caesar. 69-79 A.D. Uncertain Asian Mint (o mint). 76 A.D. (3.39g, 19.5mm, 6h). Obv: T CAES IMP VESP CENS, laureate head right, annulet below tip of neck. Rev: PON MAX TR P COS V, winged caduceus. About VF. RIC II 1486 (R2), RPC 1460. Ex. Harry N. Sneh Collection.

A very scarce issue from the o mint. This may be only the fourth known specimen of this coin (ANS, Berlin, and David Atherton). This type is not in the BMC, the Paris collection, or Cohen. This example is also a good example of the lax standards at this mint as the title Pon Max is inappropriate for Titus as Caesar. Also note the small number of dies used in this series as this obverse die is shared by my other two o mint Titus coins, BMC pl. 17-14, and RIC 1482.
