Domitian RIC-521
AR Denarius, 3.44g
Rome mint, 87 AD
RIC 521 (C). BMC 114. RSC 222.
Obv: IMP CAES DOMIT AVG - GERM P M TR P VII; Head of Domitian, laureate, bearded, r.
Rev: IMP XIIII COS XIII CENS P P P; Minerva stg. l., with spear (M4)
Ex Gemini X, 13 January 2013, Harry N. Sneh Collection, lot 724. Ex Berk 170, 29 July 2010, lot 175.

A denarius listed as common, but really isn't as common as one would think. According to C. Clay only one listed in the Reka Devina hoard and none in the Paris collection. TR P VII dates this to the second issue of 87.

In a pleasing style and large flan (22 mm).
