Julia Titi was the only child of the emperor Titus, born to his second wife, Marcia Furnilla in 64. He divorced her the following year but Titus kept custody of Julia. While she was married to a cousin, T. Flavius Sabinus, she nevertheless became the mistress of her father's brother, Domitian. After the death of both her father and her husband, she openly lived with Domitian for a time when his official wife Domitia was out of favor. She died in 91 of what may have been complications following a miscarriage. This coin, issued by her father Titus, shows her as a beautiful girl of seventeen.
