Titus RIC II 0102
Titus 79-81A.D. AR Denarius. Rome mint. 3.36 g. Jan.-July 80 A.D. Obv: IMP TITVS CɅES VESPɅSIɅN ɅVG PM, laureate head r. Rev: TRP IX IMP XV COS VIII P P, trophy with female seated r. in attitude of morning, and male captive seated l., hands bound behind back. RIC 102, RSC 306, BMC 37.

This coin may serve to both symbolize a victory in Britain, and as a reminder of the Jewish victory. Titus issued a number of trophy-captive types during his reign from 79-81 A.D. One of my favorite coins thus far, for both the condition, and the historic significance.
