Domitian RIC-435
AR Denarius, 2.98g
Rome mint, 86 AD
RIC 435 (R). BMC 93. RSC 201b.
Obv: IMPēCAES DOMIT AVG GERM P M TR P V; Head of Domitian, laureate, bearded, r.
Rev: IMP XII COS XII CENS P P P; Minerva adv. r., with spear and shield (M1)
Ex Dionysos, eBay, April 2016.

This denarius is part of the third issue of 86. At the time Domitian was waging a war against the Dacians and the imperial salutations were being awarded at a fast pace, this coin records his 12th acclamation. The denarii from these issues tend to be in fine style and quite scarce.

Nicely centred with a noble portrait.
