Domitian RIC-456
AR Denarius, 3.11g
Rome mint, 86 AD
Obv: IMP CAES DOMIT AVGGERM P M TR P VI; Head of Domitian, laureate, bearded, r.
Rev: IMP XIIII COS XII CENSPPP; Minerva stg. r. on capital of rostral column, with spear and shield; to r., owl (M2)
RIC 456 (R). BMC 98. RSC 210b. BNC -.

All of Domitian's denarii minted in 86 are rare, so well worth seeking out. This example is from the fifth issue, struck after mid-September.

86 saw a rapid increase in Domitian's imperial salutations, mainly due to troubles on the Danube.

A decent denarius in the formal, mannered style of 85-87.
