Domitian RIC-429
AR Denarius, 3.12g
Rome mint, 86 AD
RIC 429 (C). BMC 90. RSC 193.
Obv: IMP CAES DOMIT AVG GERM P M TR P V; Head of Domitian, laureate, bearded, r.
Rev: IMP XI COS XII CENS P P P; Minerva stg. l., with thunderbolt and spear; shield at her side (M3)

Part of the first issue of 86, this denarius features the most common Minerva type (M3) for the issue. Not a die match with the RIC plate coin, however, it appears the same hand engraved both. Judging by the patina and flan condition it may possibly be a detectorist find.

In fine style and a decent specimen despite the flan chip. Forgive the poor photo quality which of course does it no justice.
