Vespasian assumed the role of PONTIFEX MAXIMVS, high priest of the religion of ancient Rome, in 71 AD. The importance Vespasian placed on this is clear because coin types following the appointment represent an abundant range of religious themes including this aureus celebrating Vesta, goddess of the hearth, home and family.
