RIC V972


RIC 972 (Vesp), BMCRE 319 (Vesp), RSC 17 Rome Mint, 78-79 A.D. Obv - T CAESAR VESPASIANVS; Head of Titus, laureate, bearded, r. Rev - ANNONA AVG; Annona, draped, seated l. on throne, adorned with corn-ears, feet on stool, holding on her lap a sack of corn-ears open, the ties, looped at one end, in her hands. VF A reverse type that forms part of a new agrarian policy announcement. Both Vespasian and Titus issued many reverses during this era that seems to have promoted the new programme. I like the portrait on this coin, which is why it has found a place in my collection. The toning is very pleasant in hand also.
