Vitellius, AR denarius, Civil War Issue

AR 18mm/3.1gm  Rome mint c. 69 AD

Con/ Slightly off-struck to left, otherwise, Very Fine.

Obv/ [A VITELLIVS] GERM IMP AVG TR P; laureate head right

Rev/  XV VIR SACR FAC; Tripod-lebes with dolphin laying right above and raven standing right below

Ref/ RIC Vol One, 109, RSC111, BCM39

Seller's Note/ As we think that collecting ancient coins should be a learning experience and NOT just spending your hard-earned cash, you may wonder about the reverse legend XV VIR SACR FAC? Basically he is referring to and reminding the Roman citizens as to his past appointment to the college of 15 Chief Roman priests...not that it did him any good. Rare coin!
