Ref: RIC.27a

Titus Flavius Vespasianus, born in A.D. 41, was the esteemed elder son of Vespasian and Flavia Domitilla. He received a comprehensive education alongside Britannicus, the ill-fated son of Claudius. Demonstrating his capabilities, Titus served in Germany and Britain, commanding a legion during his father's campaign in Judea. While Vespasian assumed the imperial throne, Titus valiantly continued the war and successfully captured Jerusalem in A.D. 70.

Recognizing his son's exceptional talents, Vespasian bestowed upon him a shared role in governance upon his return to Rome. Thus, the transition to Titus' succession in A.D. 79 transpired seamlessly.

As emperor, Titus epitomized benevolence and compassion, dedicating himself to the welfare of his subjects. A.D. 81 he would become ill with a fever from which he would not recover. The empire witnessed profound sorrow throughout, mourning the loss of a leader who had endeared himself to the hearts of many.
