Domitian RIC-439
AR Denarius, 3.15g
Rome mint, 86 AD
RIC 439 (R). BMC p. 319, ‡. RSC 202.
Obv: IMP•CAES DOMIT AVG•GERM P M TR P V; Head of Domitian, laureate, bearded, r.
Rev: IMP•XII COS XII CENS•P•P•P•; Minerva stg. l., with thunderbolt and spear; shield at her side (M3)
Acquired from Romae Aeternae, June 2016.

The second denarius issue of 86 records Domitian's 12th imperial acclamation. TR P V indicates it was struck before mid September. A fairly rare issue.

Obverse scratches, but I think the fine portrait redeems the coin.

Nice portrait, the reverse seems die linked with mine (not in the gallery, I should post it)
