Titus / Eagle
Titus as Caesar. 70-79 AD. Denarius, Rome, 76 AD.
O: T CAESAR IMP - VESPASIANVS Head laureate left.
R: COS - V across field, Eagle with raised wings standing right on garlanded altar, head left.
- RIC 873 (R2), pl. 10 (different dies). BMC 192 note (citing Cohen). Cohen 60 (Rollin).
Very rare with portrait left: not in BM by 1976, not in the Paris catalogue nor in the Reka Devnia hoard, since the reported seven specimens in Sofia were doubtless actually Cohen 59 with portrait right. RIC 873 cites two specimens with portrait left. David Atherton notes in his example of this type, "RIC generically describes the reverse as eagle with 'thunderbolt in claws', so this coin without thunderbolt should be regarded as a variant."

Another great portrait and with the added bonus he's facing left!

Awesome find! I have two examples, one is a double die match with yours.
