Domitian RIC-667
AR Denarius, 3.46g
Rome mint, 88-89 AD
RIC 667 (C3). BMC 151. RSC 252.
Obv: IMP CAES DOMIT AVG GERM P M TR P VIII; Head of Domitian, laureate, bearded, r.
Rev: IMP XIX COS XIIII CENS P P P; Minerva adv r., with spear and shield (M1)
Acquired from Zuzim, November 2013.

Imperial acclamations were coming fast and furious during the 88-89 time period, which is the primary means of differentiating the many various issues. The fourth issue of 88-89 recording Domitian's 19th imperial acclamation is quite large, almost all of the coins in the issue being C3. Despite the heavy demands of a large issue the artistic quality and integrity remains intact. The high standards Domitian demanded of his mint is evident in this fourth issue coin.

An excellent portrait on a well centered tight flan.
