Constructed under Vespasian’s rule, the Colosseum was built upon the site previously occupied by Nero’s Golden Palace. This type was originally struck as a lifetime issue depicting the living Titus as master of the world, seated atop a globe. This piece represents a significantly more rare type having been struck under Domitian after the death of Titus, but still depicting the same scenes. The only difference is that the reverse legends allude to a deceased Titus instead of a living one. This posthumous type is known for only two die styles, with only subtle differences between the two.
Design:
Obverse side
