RIC 592 (R2). BMC -. RSC -. BNC -.
Acquired from eBay, May 2020. Formerly in ANACS holder 6241625, grade F 15, Damaged.

On 1 January 88 Domitian still held his 14th imperial acclamation, but soon he was to rack up three more by the year's end. This denarius is dated by his 15th imperial acclamation, presumably from a Dacian campaign battle, awarded sometime in late summer just before the new title TR P VIII is recorded on the coinage in mid September. The issue from which this coin was struck is quite rare, indicating a very small period of time it could have been struck, perhaps just a few weeks. Missing from the BM and Paris collections. RIC cites one in Madrid and another in a private collection.

Damaged, but nicely toned.
