    Well, I'm finally beginning to fill in my Flavian's with a couple of "new" Titus coins. Nothing rare, nothing extraordinaire. But like I said before, my collection has been lacking in Titus coins.

    Show me some more Titus coins - just to give me something to shoot for, eh?

    That's a nice looking one Bing. Almost hard to tell where his neck ends and his head begins :)
    There is only one Titus in FFIVN and my collection. A Judea Capta. Nothing for you to shoot for since it isn't in great shape :p
    I will defer to others' coins for inspiration.

    Nice addition @Bing

    David,

    That one looks familiar.

    Here is an early one for Titus as Augustus. RIC 20, a very rare coin.

    Here is another rare lefty. RIC 50.
    Titus RIC 50.jpg
    An extremely rare variant of the OP coin.First, count the palmettes then see the lituus under the triangular frame. This one is the second known. David Atherton has the other one.

    If you really want something to shoot for...try this one. RIC 695 [Vepasian]. This coin is the RIC plate coin. It is one of a total of 2 known.

    Congratulations on another Flavian gap-filler Bing. I've shown my 2 coins of Titus many times, so I wont repeat them here.
