Domitian RIC-719
AR Denarius, 3.44g
Rome mint, 90-91 AD
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 adv r., with spear and shield (M1)
RIC 719 (C2). BMC 176. RSC 265. BNC 166.

The Rome mint was running at peak production when this coin was struck. The early 90s saw the largest issues of denarii during Domitian's reign, most likely for legionary pay.

A respectable coin in good metal and near fine style.
