Domitian RIC-584
AR Denarius, 3.50g
Rome mint, 88 AD
Obv: IMP CAES DOMIT AVG GERM P M TR P VII; Head of Domitian, laureate, bearded, r.
Rev: IMP XIIII COS XIIII CENS P P P; Minerva stg. l., with spear (M4)
RIC 584 (C3). BMC 122. RSC 233. BNC 117.
Acquired from Apollo Numismatics, November 2013.

An exquisite example from the first issue of 88 AD. This first issue was quite extensive featuring many common types, including the present coin, but it also included many rare ones (see my RIC 574) and stylistically is quite impressive. In 88 Domitian held the Secular Games, which may explain the care given to the coinage that year.

A sharp denarius with little wear. Wonderful in hand.
