DRUSUS, son of Tiberius. Restoration issue struck under Titus. AE As, Rome mint, 80-81 AD. DRVSVS CAESAR TI AVG F DIVI AVG N, bare head of Drusus facing left. Reverse - IMP T CAES DIVI VESP F AVG REST around large SC. 27mm, 11.4g. RIC 216. Very scarce.
 
Titus' recognition of Drusus instead of Caligula here seems quite deliberate - Drusus was Tiberius' natural son and intended successor, but predeceased him by several years. The omission of Caligula is expected, and the inclusion of Drusus no doubt promotes the proper dynastic message.
