View Categories Home > Catalog > |Roman Coins| > |The Twelve Caesars| > |Titus| > RS89741Titus, 24 June 79 - 13 September 81 A.D. This type is from a very rare early issue of Titus as Augustus, not yet naming him P P (Pater Patriae - Father of the Country). Titus apparently accepted this title quite soon after the beginning of his ninth tribunician year on 1 July 79 and P P was quickly added to the end of the reverse legend.
