Well I think i should post a coin of my own here Smiley  It is a very rare denarius of Domitian struck at the start of 88 A.D. and along other rare types forms a special issue to mark the new consulhip.   The portrait was executed not by the regular celators of denarii, but perhaps a bronze worker. Artiscally it is perhaps the finest i have.
