Domitian RIC-460
AR Denarius, 3.35g
Rome mint, 86 AD
RIC 460 (R). BMC (spec. acquired 1989). RSC 210c.
Obv: IMP CAES DOMIT AVG GERM P M TR P VI; Head of Domitian, laureate, bearded, r.
Rev: IMP XIIII COS XII CENSPPP; Minerva stg. l., with spear (M4)
Acquired from A. G .& S. Gillis, April 2013.

All the denarii from this fifth issue of 86 minted after September are quite rare. Domitian was rapidly accumulating imperial salutations during the year, which are likely in conjunction with his Dacian Wars of 85-86. This coin records his fourteenth imperial salutation.

A decent coin with honest wear and a very stylish portrait.

Additional attribution thanks to Curtis Clay.
