Domitian RIC-721
AR Denarius, 3.39g
Rome mint, 90-91 AD
RIC 721 (C2). BMC 181. RSC 264.
Obv: IMP CAES DOMIT AVG GERM P M TR P X; Head of Domitian, laureate, bearded, r.
Rev: IMP XXI COS XV CENS P P P; Minerva stg. l., with thunderbolt and spear; shield at her l. side (M3)
Acquired from MUSA, May 2013.

Domitian did not assume the consulship in 91, so this coin is dated by the tribunician title from mid-September 90 to mid-September 91. The basic four Minerva reverse types dominate this series.

A decent coin in fine style. Domitian's exacting high standards are in evidence here.
