Julia Titi, Augusta c. 79 - 89 A.D.

Julia Titi was the daughter of the Emperor Titus, and although married, she had an affair with her uncle Domitian. In 83 A.D., Domitian divorced his wife and lived openly with her. It has been said that she died because Domitian forced her to have an abortion but modern research indicates this allegation is false.

Vesta was originally a household spirit. Later she was personified as the goddess of the hearth and given the stature of her Greek equivalent, Hestia. In the temple of Vesta, her sacred flame was kept alive by Vestal Virgins. In 394, by order of the Christian emperor Theodosius I in his campaign to eliminate pagan practices in Rome, the fire of Vesta was extinguished.

Julia Titi, Augusta, c. 79 - 89 A.D., Tomis, Moesia Inferior, TPA (Trajan) Countermark

Click for a larger photo
Apparently unpublished and without legible inscriptions, the attribution is based on the portrait and the countermark. The countermark was applied at Tomis during the reign of Trajan. Of the empresses before Trajan's reign, the portrait looks most like Julia Titi. This is the second example of this countermark on this type handled by Forum. We do not know of any other examples.

Julia Titi, Augusta c. 79 - 89 A.D.; Ancient Counterfeit

Click for a larger photo
Although this coin does not have a visible copper core, we believe it coin is an ancient plated counterfeit. Their are very tiny coppery areas, and, more telling, small lumps in the obverse right field that are typical on plated coins.

CNG 196, lot 268 (plated, 1 Oct 08, $955 + fees); Jean Elsen 87, lot 1347 (plated, 11 Mar 2006, 600€ + fees), RIC II Titus 387 (official), aVF, solid plating, scratches, weight 3.145 g, maximum diameter 19.4 mm, die axis 180o, unofficial mint, c. 81 A.D.; obverse IVLIA AVGVSTA T AVG F, diademed and draped bust right; reverse VENVS AVG, Venus standing right, viewed from behind, nude but for drapery at hips, buttocks exposed, leaning with left elbow on column, helmet in extended right, transverse spear behind in left; very rare; SOLD
