The reverse type, depicting Victory on the prow of a ship, is a legend variant of the VICTORIA NAVALIS type struck for both Titus and Vespasian in AD 71-72. This is sometimes attributed as a reference to an obscure victory over Judaean rebels on the Sea of Galilee, mentioned briefly by Flavius Josephus in The Jewish War. Although this interpretation is disputed, there remains no other naval victory on record during the Flavian era.
