Vespasian, Divus. Died 79 AD. Antoninianus, 3.83g. (7h). Rome, restored by Trajan Decius, 250-1 AD. Obv: DIVO VESPASIANO Radiate head of Divus Vespasian right. Rx: CONSECRATIO Rectangular, lighted altar with four panels on front. RIC 80 (R ). Cohen 651 (4 Fr.). Scarce: seven specimens in Dorchester hoard. Good VF.

Ex CNG 47, 16 September 1998, lot 189.
