Domitian RIC-687
AR Denarius, 3.36g
Rome mint, 89 AD
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 stg. l., with thunderbolt and spear; shield at her l. side (M3)
RIC 687 (C2). BMC 160. RSC 256. BNC 155.

A fairly common denarius struck at a time of increased military activity along the Danube. Imperial acclamations were being awarded to Domitian at a fast pace culminating in a double triumph the Senate voted Domitian over the chatti and Dacians at the end of the year.

Engraved in decent style and in good metal. Denarii of this period were struck at 90% fineness.
