Titus as Caesar RIC II V0693
Titus as Caesar. 69-79 A.D. Rome Mint. 74 A.D. (2.94g, 19.0mm, 6h). Obv: T CAESAR IMP VESP, laureate head r. Rev: PONTIF TR P COS III, Caduceus, winged. RIC II V693 (R), BMC V152, RSC 159. Ex Harry N. Sneh Collection.

A scarce example of a Titus as Caesar mirroring the identical issue for Vespasian. No examples of this type were in the Reka Devina hoard. The caduceus, misinterpreted by medieval scholars to be associated with doctors, was actually a characteristic of Mercury and associated with commerce and trade.
