Titus RIC II 0115
Titus 79-81 A.D. AR Denarius. Rome Mint, 1 Jan. ĖJune 30 A.D. (2.93g, 18mm, 6h). Obv: IMP TITUS CAES VESPASIAN AVG P M, laureate head right. Rev: TR P IX IMP XV COS VIII P P, elephant, cuirassed, standing left. RIC 115, RSC 303. CNG 263/314.

Issued contemporaneously with the pulvinaria series, this type lends credence to the theory those coins were minted to commemorate the opening of the Colosseum. Although showing some wear, this example is well centered and has complete and clear legends on the obverse and reverse.
