Domitian RIC-670
AR Denarius, 3.20g
Rome mint, 88-89 AD
RIC 670 (C3). BMC 154. RSC 250.
Obv: IMP CAES DOMIT AVG GERM P M TR P VIII; Head of Domitian, laureate, bearded, r.
Rev: IMP XIX COS XIIII CENS PP P; Minerva stg. l., with spear (M4)
Acquired from Zuzim, March 2013.

A denarius which records Domitian's 19th Imperial salutation, most likely awarded for a victory over the German Chatti in late 88 or early 89 (probably by March or April of 89). Typical of Domitian's denarii of this time period, the portrait is in fine style and the overall workmanship is fairly high quality.
