Domitian RIC-667
AR Denarius, 3.46g
Rome mint, 88-89 AD
Obv: IMP CAES DOMIT AVG GERM P M TR P VIII; Head of Domitian, laureate, bearded, r.
Rev: IMP XIX COS XIIII CENS P P P; Minerva adv r., with spear and shield (M1)
RIC 667 (C3). BMC 151. RSC 252. BNC 145.
Acquired from Zuzim, November 2013.

Imperial acclamations were coming fast and furious during the 88-89 time period, which is the primary means of differentiating the many various issues. The fourth issue of 88-89 recording Domitian's 19th imperial acclamation is quite large, almost all of the coins in the issue being C3. Despite the heavy demands of a large issue the artistic quality and integrity remains intact. The high standards Domitian demanded of his mint is evident in this fourth issue coin.

An excellent portrait on a well centered tight flan.
