Can anyone help ID the rev?
I am confident of a Domitian obv.
Thanks!

Have you posted the coin already? It seems familiar somehow. It's from Philippopolis in Thrace.

Note that the obverse legend is Latin, the reverse legend Greek.

That link does identify the coin, except that the description says "lyre?."
Varbanov (E) 616 says, correctly to my old eyes, that Apollo is holding two short spears in his left arm. You gave no coin size. If it is 28mm, the Varbanov citation I gave seems to apply.

YES!!!! That's it!!! 28mm on the dot.
Thank you!!!

I posted the coin in "uncleaned".
I cleaned it myself, it took forever, but i think it looks pretty good.
I am not an expert.

Any idea on rarity?
