Whenever I have the chance to grab an 'O' mint denarius I will. I only had one in my collection and this one makes 2. Some speculate that the 'O' mint is Ephesus but no one is 100% sure where these were minted. According to RIC "The location is uncertain and the reason for its production is mysterious". The 'O' is under the bust and is indistinct on my coin. It is near the truncation.
I know the corn is worn and has only a partial legend on the obverse, but I will still gladly welcome this one into my collection. I have always been attracted to the FIDES PUBL denarii. I would love to find the Domitian version.
Vespasian (69 - 79 A.D.) silver denarius.
Unknown 'o' mint Ephesus?, ('O' beneath bust in obverse.
Obv: IMP CAESAR VESPASIANVS AVG, laureate head right.
Rev: FIDES PVBL, hands clasped over caduceus. two poppies and two corn-ears
