Titus RIC II 0025
Titus 79-81 A.D. AR Denarius. Rome Mint 79 A.D. after 1 July. (2.66g, 18m, 5h). Obv: IMP TITVS CAES VESPASIAN AVG PM, laureate head right. Rev: TR P VIII IMP XIIII COS VII P P, quadriga left with corn ears. RIC II 25, BMC 18, RSC 278.

This type was already minted for Titus as Caesar earlier in 79 A.D., and the continuation of the type, demonstrates a seamless transition of Titusí accession with little, if any, interruption of mint production. With an irregular flan and some wear on the highpoints, this specimen retains its legends and the detail on the horses pulling the quadriga appealed to me.
