Vespasian BMCRE 7


BMCRE 7, RSC 84. Rome mint, A.D. 69 - 70 Obv - Head of Vespasian, lauerate, r. Rev - Fortuna, draped, standing l.,setting r. hand on prow and holding cornucopiae in l. hand. VF+ A reverse type that wishes for a safe return of the new emperor Vespasian back to Rome after the end of the Civil war. Fortuna's hand resting on a prow is quite appropriate. A nice coin marred only by the slightly off center obverse. The celetors were still finding it difficult to come up with a portrait of the new emperor.
