Denomination : Silver denarius.  Mint : Rome.

Date : issue of AD 79.

Size : 16.7 x 18.2 mm.  Weight : 3.22 grams.

Reference : Sear-2505 variety.  RSC-295.   

Grade : aVF

Obverse : Head of Titus right, with IMP TITVS CAES VESPASIAN AVG P M around

Reverse : Military trophy composed of a bound captive in front of arms, with TR P VIIII IMP XV COS VII P P around.

This type, and a few associated types, mostly likely commemorate the 10th anniversary of Titus' military victory over the Jews (his only military victory).  Another theory has been put forward suggesting they commemorate what was at that time current military activity on Britain under the Governor Gnaeus Julius Agricola, but that seems highly unlikely when you look at the associated types that include a Triumphal Quadriga, Victory attaching a shield to a trophy and two other trophy types. They clearly commemorate a major victory, not an ongoing military campaign.
