Domitian RIC-439
AR Denarius, 3.15g
Rome mint, 86 AD
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)
RIC 439 (R). BMC p. 319, ‡. RSC 202. BNC 98.
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)
