    Description

    Titus. A.D. 79-81. AR denarius, (18 mm, 3.35 g, 5 h). Rome, A.D. 79. Laureate head of Titus right / Slow quadriga carrying grain ears left. RIC 8; BMC p. 224, * (b); RSC 276. XF, minor roughness. Ex Freeman & Sear 8 (5 February 2003), 445.

    The curious reverse type has been described by Laffranchi as depicting a quadriga carrying a modius of grain ears in a procession honoring the agricultural goddess Ceres, although the object in the car does look more like a flower (the lily of defeated Jerusalem?). The general type appears to be derived from issues of the Augustan moneyers L. Aquilius Florus and M. Durmius.
