Domitian RIC-689
AR Denarius, 3.41g
Rome mint, 90 AD
RIC 689 (C2). BMC 164. RSC 261.
Obv: IMP CAES DOMIT AVG GERM P M TR P VIIII; Head of Domitian, laureate, bearded, r.
Rev: IMP XXI COS XV CENS P P P; Minerva adv. r., with spear and shield (M1)
Acquired from Aegean Numismatics, April 2015.

This denarius exemplifies the fine quality and high standards the Rome mint upheld during Domitian's reign, even during large issues such as this one struck in 90 AD. No new imperial acclamations are recorded for Domitian in 90. He became COS XV on 1 January and continued to be TR P VIIII until mid September.

A superb portrait struck on a large flan (20mm) and well centred. A very respectable denarius.
