Vespasian BMCRE 17


BMCRE 17, RSC 94a Rome Mint, 69 - 70 A.D. Obv - Head of Vespasian, laureate, r. Rev - Aequitas, draped, standing l., holding scales in r. hand, transverse rod in l. VF Issued during Vespasian's first year some of these coins exhibit portraits that resemble Vitellius. This one has some of those traits. Vespasian was either in Egypt or on his way to Rome when many of these coins were struck. The die cutters most likely did not have Vespasian's bust to work from and used modified busts of Vitellius. Believe it or not this is not a common reverse type to find. I had much difficulty in locating one in VF condition and in a style that I found pleasing
