Vespasian, A.D. 69-79

Bronze Sestertius (25.04 gr.), Rome Mint, ca. A.D. 71. 

NGC EF, Strike: 5/5 Surface: 3/5.

 

"IMP CAE VESPASIAN AVG P M TR P P P COS III" Laureate bust of Vespasian facing right;
"IVDAEA CAPTA", Palm tree, captive at left standing facing right, Judaea at right seated on cuirass facing right in attitude of mourning, arms and shields surrounding figures, "S C" in exergue.
An interesting variety with the "S" in "CAES" on the obverse legend not present, noted in RIC II.
Terrific strike, well centered on a flan that almost appears medallic. Surface porosity evident, though an attractive tawny hue pervades this piece.
