Domitian RIC-504
AR Denarius, 3.33g
Rome mint, 87 AD
RIC 504 (C). BMC 101. RSC 217.
Obv: IMP CAES DOMIT. AVG GERM P M TR P VI; Head of Domitian, laureate, bearded, r.
Rev: IMP XIIII COS XIII CENS P P P; Minerva adv. r., with spear and shield (M1)
Acquired from Vaughn, August 2013.

87 AD saw a decline in the output of denarii which continued from the previous year's meager emissions. All four standard Minerva reverse types were minted with no irregularities. This example is from the first issue of 87.

A decent coin with hints of the flamboyant portraits of the following year.

A nice coin with honest, attractive wear.
