Julia Titi. Denarius
Julia Titi. . Denarius, 3.50g. (6h). Rome, 79-81 AD. Obv: IVLIA AVGVSTA TITI AVGVSTI F. Bust diademed, draped right, hair in plait down back. Rx: VENVS - AVGVST Venus viewed half from back, nude except for drapery around thighs, standing right leaning on column, holding helmet and scepter. Scarcer that the "C2" rating in the new RIC would appear to indicate: only eight specimens in Reka Devnia hoard, plus four other denarii of Julia Titi with other types, compared to 431 denarii of Titus and, for example, 47 denarii of Otho in the same hoard. RIC 388 (C2). BM 142. Paris 106. Cohen 14 (30 Fr.). The highest details of the empress' coiffure not fully struck up, but still excellent portrait with toned mint luster. Mint State.
