Domitian RIC-497
As, 9.41g
Rome mint, 86 AD
Obv: IMP CAES DOMIT AVG GERM COS XII CENS PER P P; Head of Domitian, laureate, bearded, r., with aegis
Rev: S C in field; Victory flying l., with shield inscribed SPQR
RIC 497 (R2). BMC -. BNC -.
Acquired from Praefectus Coins, July 2020.

This Victory reverse was copied from Nero by Vespasian and briefly struck for Domitian in 85-86. It likely was part of Domitian's large bronze issue commemorating his recent victory over the Chatti. This is the final appearance of the type under Domitian, which lends credence to the theory it specifically refers to the Germanic War. Extremely rare and missing from both the BM and Paris collections.

Fine style and fetching patina.
