Silver denarius struck during the reign of the Emperor Titus in the name of his father, Vespasian, in the period 79 to 81 AD, Ancient Roman Empire. Minted by Rome. Vespasian died on 23 June 79 BC and was immediately deified. This issue, in memory of Vespasian, is often dated 80-81 AD as there is a gap in silver and gold coin production in the name of Titus for this period. However there is no reason why production could not have begun in 79.
