Titus as Caesar RIC II V1470
Titus as Caesar. 69-79 A.D. AR Denarius. Ephesus Mint, 74 A.D. (3.18g, 18.6m, 6h). Obv: IMP T CAESAR COS III, bearded, laureate head r. Rev: PACI AVGVSTAE (from high r.), Victory advancing r., with wreath and palm, at lower r., star, below annulet. RIC II 1470, RPC 857, RSC 123. Ex CNG 277/227.

The PACI AVGVSTAE reverse shown here is unique to the Ephesus mint, as are the issue marks. There are a number of issues with the star from this mint, but fewer with the annulet in conjunction with the star.
The condition of this coin makes it one of my better Titus specimens. His beard is clearly visible, and the star and annulet are pristine.
