Obv: IVLIA IMP T AVG F AVGVSTA; Bust of Julia, draped, r., hair piled high in front and knotted low at back
Rev: VESTA in exergue; Vesta std. l., with palladium and sceptre

Titus struck a small issue of denarii for his daughter Julia Titi, most of which are fairly scarce. This Vesta reverse type is much rarer than the more commonly encountered Venus one. Julia is seen here sporting the classic Flavian lady hairdo.

Worn, but not unattractively so.

"The brothers, Caius and Lucius, were the sons of Agrippa and Julia, daughter of Augustus. They were due to succeed Augustus but predeceased him in 4 and 2 A.D. respectively. Gaius, the elder of the two brothers has his shield placed in front of that of his younger brother and the ladle above him marking him as Pontifex. Lucius has lituus above marking him as augur. Gaius should have the more prestigious position on the left but this variety has him on the right." - Forum

Monumental altar (of Caesareum) with six columns, surmounted with pyre, enclosing Eusebeia (?) in centre

12h

Note RPC.
Often described as altar of Agathodaemon (K; Bakhoum; Vogt, pp. 106-9; S. Handler, AJA 75 (1971), pp. 68-9); BMC said enclosing statue of goddess facing; on her head, disc. (Altar of Caesareum). D just said: Altare. Peristylium con sei colonne dordine Corintio, tra quelle di centro un personaggio in piede a s.; versa incense sopra altare. Sulla sommit una pyra e su ciascuna cantonata un aplustrum; le cantonate alle base hanno un ordine indecifrabile. Only clue is the aplustres. Some varieties have little altars between the columns (D1894). There are some round objects hanging up among the columns (e.g. D1894, Boston). The bases of the structure at l. and r. are in the form of the upper part of a human body. The same structure, with and without the central figure, also occurs on Antonine coins, which are often much better preserved than the Hadrianic pieces: see RPC IV online. J. McKenzie, The Architecture of Alexandria and Egypt (Yale, 2007), p. 187 describes it as a distinctive but unidentified structure, rejecting as unsatisfactory the identifications as the monumental altars in the Caesareum, the altar of Agathos Daimon or the altar of Alexander.

These pieces are attributed to the Kersini because they were found with other coins carrying the inscription KERSINON; both types of coins come from the area of the modern-day St. Caterina Villarmosa. The Kersini were most likely a group of Campanian mercenaries employed by one of the Syracusan tyrants of the 5th-4th Century BC, who were given some land or municipality once their service was complete.

The first denarius issue at Ephesus was struck without mint marks and all of them are quite rare. This particular denarius has a peculiarly crude style compared with other Ephesian denarii. RIC II.1 authors Carradice and Buttrey comment about this coin in the introduction on p. 8 - 'a recent example seen in trade (Imperial Coins 2004) had the correct legend (and good weight for a denarius, at 3.29g) but a very different, inferior style on both the obverse and reverse. Is such a coin a barbarous imitation, or simply the product of a less able die-engraver employed at the start of a mint's output?' Curiously, the RIC plate coin of this same type from Oxford is in a similarly crude style. My hunch is that it is an official product of the mint. Interesting to note that Mattingly in BMCRE II doubted the type existed without mint mark, which indicates how rare it is!

Struck on a small flan in high relief.

Vespasian RIC 21 (2)5 viewsAR Denarius, 2.82g
Rome Mint, 69-70 AD
RIC 21 (C), BMC 17, RSC 94a
Obv: IMP CAESAR VESPASIANVS AVG; Head of Vespasian, laureate, r.
Rev: COS ITER TR POT; Aequitas, draped, standing l., holding scales in r. hand, transverse rod in l.
Acquired from Ars Coin Wein, February 2017.

The coin was likely struck in the early weeks of Vespasian's reign, which would account for the Vitellian-like portrait. The mint's engravers probably did not have a bust of Vespasian to work from and so produced a modified portrait of the previous emperor. With Vespasian still in Egypt, understandably the mint's engravers had a hard time figuring out his portrait ... at least until someone sent a portrait bust to the mint.

Good metal and unusual style.
