Domitian RIC-392
AR Denarius, 3.10g
Rome mint, 85 AD
Obv: IMP CAES DOMITAVGGERM P M TR P V; Head of Domitian, laureate, bearded, r.
Rev: IMP XI COS XI CENS P P P; Minerva stg. r. on capital of rostral column, with spear and shield; to r., owl (M2)
RIC 392 (R2). BMC -. RSC -. BNC -.

Here is a denarius from the rare sixth issue of 85, the first which marks Domitian's assumption of the perpetual censorship (CENS P). Unlisted in BMCRE and RSC and cited in only two private collections by RIC. Also, Alberto has one in his gallery. Perhaps the fourth specimen known (?).

Beautifully toned with a stylish portrait.

very nice portrait...beside Vespasian and Titus, Domitian has the nicest portraits of all Roman emperors.
