Object type certainty: Certain
Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

A silver plated contemporary copy of a denarius of Titus as Caesar, c. AD 71-79 (Reece Period 4). The reverse type is most similar to RIC no. 556, although the official coin depicts the emperor facing right. Also the legend may be blundered or different to the official issue, although the condition of the coin makes reading the legend hard.
