Doomed temple of Vesta in the Forum, showing four columns and containing statue of the goddess on pedestal

Rome 73 AD

9.48g

RIC 601 (R); Sear 2365; BMCRE 664

Rare

Ex-Calgary Coin

This celebrated temple had been rebuilt by Nero following the great fire of 64 AD. The Neronian structure survived until another conflagration late in the reign of Commodus and was again restored early in the 3rd century by Julia Domna. It was again rebuilt in more modern times where it still stands in the Roman Forum to this day.

Die notes from Curtis Clay:

"Same dies, and better condition, than the Paris spec., pl. LVII, 663.

The BM spec., pl. 26.9, also illustrated in RIC, pl. 40, 601, is also from the same rev. die, but a different obv. die.

The BM and Paris specimens of the same As for Titus COS II CENS are also from that same rev. die: BM pl. 27.7 = RIC pl. 42, 640; Paris pl. LIX, 689."

RIC 601 (R); Sear 2365; BMCRE 664

Rare

Ex-Calgary Coin

This celebrated temple had been rebuilt by Nero following the great fire of 64 AD. The Neronian structure survived until another conflagration late in the reign of Commodus and was again restored early in the 3rd century by Julia Domna. It was again rebuilt in more modern times where it still stands in the Roman Forum to this day.

Die notes from Curtis Clay:

"Same dies, and better condition, than the Paris spec., pl. LVII, 663.

The BM spec., pl. 26.9, also illustrated in RIC, pl. 40, 601, is also from the same rev. die, but a different obv. die.

The BM and Paris specimens of the same As for Titus COS II CENS are also from that same rev. die: BM pl. 27.7 = RIC pl. 42, 640; Paris pl. LIX, 689."

This celebrated temple had been rebuilt by Nero following the great fire of 64 AD. The Neronian structure survived until another conflagration late in the reign of Commodus and was again restored early in the 3rd century by Julia Domna. It was again rebuilt in more modern times where it still stands in the Roman Forum to this day.

Die notes from Curtis Clay:

"Same dies, and better condition, than the Paris spec., pl. LVII, 663.

The BM spec., pl. 26.9, also illustrated in RIC, pl. 40, 601, is also from the same rev. die, but a different obv. die.

The BM and Paris specimens of the same As for Titus COS II CENS are also from that same rev. die: BM pl. 27.7 = RIC pl. 42, 640; Paris pl. LIX, 689."

Some insight why this may not be official from Curtis Clay:

1. For mint mules the obv. and rev. should belong to either the same issue or to immediately successive issues. But on Jay's coin the obv. is of 72-early 73 (COS IIII without CENS), but the PONTIF MAXIM rev. is not otherwise known with that COS IIII obv. legend, nor with the next legend with COS IIII CEN, nor with the legend after that with just CEN and still clockwise, but only with the third obv. legend thereafter, namely CEN but counterclockwise. That rev. type is probably of 74 AD, since at its last stage it occurs with a legend specifically dated to 74, PON MAX TR P COS V. Obv. of 72-early 73, rev. of 74: that's a combination that the official mint was unlikely to produce.

2. IMI for IMP in obv. legend, an error that an official engraver was unlikely to make.
