Titus as Caesar RIC II V1078
Titus as Caesar. 69-79 A.D. Rome Mint. 79 A.D. to June 24. (3.38g, 19.1mm, 6h). Obv: T CAESAR IMP VESPASIANVS, laureate head r. Rev: TR POT VIII COS VII, Venus stg. r., leaning on column, with helmet and spear. RIC II V1078, BMC V255, RSC 332. Ex Harry N. Sneh Collection.

This is part of the last precious metal issue for Titus before Vespasians death. This type carried over into Tituss reign following his fathers death (T15, T34).

While worn, this example is well centered and retains full legends. This is also a good example of a big head and bull necked portrait of Titus. In Rome, later issues frequently sported a small head on the obverse portrait- see my Titus 108 as an example.
