Titus, 24 June 79 - 13 September 81 A.D.
Coins from this eastern mint have Latin legends and the usual Rome mint AE denominations but are differentiated by large portraits, crowded legends with serifs, a variable die axis, and a flat or even convex reverse. There are almost no finds of these coins from Western Europe. All the coins attributed by BMCRE to Lugdunum are now assigned to this eastern mint.
