Domitian RIC-431
AR Denarius, 3.23g
Rome mint, 86 AD
RIC 431 (R). BMC p. 318, *. RSC 182.
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 spear (M4)
Acquired from Aegean Numismatics, March 2014.

A fairly rare denarius from the first issue of 86. The portrait continues in the fine style of 84/85 without the finery of an aegis. All four Minerva types are struck in each of the five issues of 86, evidence of the mint being divided into four officinae.

A beautiful portrait struck on a broad flan.
