Domitian RIC-429
AR Denarius, 3.12g
Rome mint, 86 AD
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)
RIC 429 (C). BMC 90. RSC 193. BNC 90.

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.
