    Description

    Titus, as Caesar. A.D. 79-81. AE sestertius (34 mm, 26.71 g). Uncertain Thracian mint, perhaps at Perinthus. Laureate head right / Mars advancing right, holding spear in right hand, trophy over shoulder in left. RPC 502; RIC 182; BMC 310. Good VF, dark green patina.
    Burnett reassigns the issues with Latin legends formerly attributed to Lugdunum, A.D. 80-82, to a mint in Thrace, perhaps Perinthus (cp. RPC II pp. 87-91, nos. 501-543). He bases this reassignment on the fact that while in Balkan museums these coins are plentiful, no examples have ever been found in the west; differences of fabric (for instance, the reverses of these tend to be very flat while those of the west are concave); stylistic affinities with coins from Perinthus; and unusual legends that are without parallel at western mints.
