Domitian RIC-454
AR Denarius, 3.46g
Rome mint, 86 AD
RIC 454 (R). BMC p. 320, . RSC 208.
Obv: IMP CAES DOMIT AVG GERM P M TR P VI; Head of Domitian, laureate, bearded, r.
Rev: IMP XIIII COS XII CENS P P P; Minerva adv. r., with spear and shield (M1)
Acquired from Forvm Ancient Coins, October 2015. Ex Jyrki Muona Collection.

This denarius from the rare fifth issue struck after mid September 86 at a time when Domitian's imperial acclamations were piling up rather quickly due to campaigns along the Danube. These issues tend to be superb in style and craftsmanship.

A nicely toned coin with a regal portrait.
