Domitian RIC-662
AR Denarius, 2.97g
Rome mint, 88-89 AD
RIC 662 (R2). BMC - . RSC - .
Obv: IMP CAES DOMITIANVS AVG GERM P M TR P VIII; Head of Domitian, laureate, bearded, r.
Rev: IMP XVII COS XIIII CENS P P P; Minerva stg. l., with spear (M4)
Ex Harry N. Sneh Collection.

Already part of a rare series Domitian minted in 88/89 AD, this is even rarer with his name DOMITIANVS spelled out. It is also an obverse die match for the RIC plate coin. Harry Sneh believes there is only one die for this obverse.

It being a detectorist find partially accounts for the horrible condition, but still the legends are legible which in this case is all important.
