Roman Empire, Vespasian BMCRE unlisted Quadriga Rome mint
BMCRE pg. 14 note, RSC 643v.
Rome mint, 72-73 A.D.
Obv - Head of Vespasian, laureate, r.
Rev - No legend. Vespasian laureate, standing in triumphal quadriga r., horses pacing, holding branch in r. hand and sceptre in l.
VF

This reverse celebrates Vespasian and Titus' Judaean Triumph at Rome.

Most examples of this reverse type are Antioch mint issues which copy the Rome mint type.

This example is unusual because of the obverse legend IMP CAES VESP AVG PM. RIC and RSC only record this reverse with COS IIII added to the end of the legend. BMCRE does not have either one listed but has a note for the COS IIII type.

This example is a rare official variant which Ian Carradice knows of only three other specimens.
