VITELLIUS (69 AD), AR denarius, LIBERTAS
Obverse- A VITELLIVS GERM IMP AVG TR P, laureate head right.
Reverse- LIBERTAS RESTITVTA, Libertas, draped, standing facing holding pileus and long rod.
RIC 105, RSC 47, 16-19 mm, 3.05 g.
Ex-Lars Rutten of Rutten & Wieland, Switzerland, from a swap through his VCoins store.

Another fairly scarce Civil War emperor who ruled from April to December of 69 AD. This coin has some moderate goldish-colored toning which does not show in the slightly overexposed photos, and it is more attractive in hand.
