PAX AVGVST / S-C Pax standing to left, holding branch and cornucopia. RIC² 498. RPC II 501. A very interesting coin. Uncleaned deposits and with many contemporary, and one modern, slashes on both sides, otherwise, fine.



We are not aware of any "Damnatio Memoriae" decree issued for Titus. Nevertheless, this coin has been clearly defaced by someone. It is almost tempting to think that this "hater" had some open issues with Titus (or maybe Vespasian if he didn't read correctly the legend), perhaps, for their involvement in the great Jewish war. What is also interesting is that the coin's fate was pretty much the same after it was lost, as it got the latest "damnatio" when it was found some years ago.
