Domitian RIC-685
AR Denarius, 3.19g
Rome mint, 89 AD
RIC 685 (C2). BMC 158. RSC 257.
Obv: IMP CAES DOMIT AVG GERM P M TR P VIIII; Head of Domitian, laureate, bearded, r.
Rev: IMP XXI COS XIIII CENS P P P; Minerva adv. r., with spear and shield (M1)

Late in 89 Domitian was voted a double triumph over the Chatti and the Dacians. This common denarius struck between mid September and 31 December records Domitian's 21st imperial acclamation, the culmination of the two campaigns. This large issue was likely struck for a donative paid out to the troops.

A conventional third period portrait in good style.
