Seller's Note/ As noted in the P M (Pontif Maxim) legend, Vespasian was serving as the head of the 15 priests who directed the Roman religion. As Augur, he was the chief official who observed natural signs, especially the behavior of birds, interpreting these as an indication of divine approval or disapproval of a proposed action.
