Titus RIC II 0020
Titus. 79-81 A.D. AR Denarius. Rome Mint 79 A.D. after July 1. (2.92g, 19.0mm, 5h). Obv: IMP TITVS CAES VESPASIAN AVG PM, laureate head left. Rev: TR P VIIII IMP XIIII COS VII PP, Capricorn left; below, globe. RIC II 20 (R2), RSC 282.

This reverse type was a copy from an issue of Augusts and was in keeping with the Flaviansí use of antiquarian designs. This reverse was used by Vespasian prior to his death, and Titus continued with its use upon becoming emperor. Despite some wear, this is a nice example, well centered, and darkly toned
