The first son of any of the Twelve Caesars, he completed the Roman Colosseum
In 2007 a new list of the Seven Wonders of the World was created, adding the Colosseum in Rome to the list for the first time. Begun under his father, the Colosseum was completed under Titus. This landmark tells the story of the days of the gladiator and is frequented by millions of visitors annually. It is today one of the most iconic global landmarks, and the grand symbol of ancient Rome. Titus was the son of Vespasian and was the first son of one of the “Twelve Caesars” to rule. As the second emperor of the Flavian Dynasty, Titus gained immense notoriety as a military commander while serving under his father in the First Jewish–Roman War. After ruling for just 2 short years, Titus fell ill and died, ostensibly of natural causes, in 81 AD.
Issued as Caesar, the obverse features the head of Titus facing right, while the reverse shows Pax, the goddess of peace, performing a sacrifice over an altar.
The present specimen is among a miniscule number of 10 of these coins ever graded Choice VF by NGC, and is an extremely coveted piece by collectors of all early Roman gold and the aurei of the Twelve Caesars – an excellent start to any collection.
