RIC 596 (C2). BMC 131. RSC 76/77. BNC 120.
Acquired from Zuzim Judaea, June 2011.

A denarius which was minted to commemorate the Secular Games Domitian held in October of 88 AD. Here we see a herald announcing the games. This reverse is the most common type of the Secular Games series and was minted in both gold and silver.

This is a wonderful coin in hand with iridescent toning and a large flan.
