Domitian RIC-721
AR Denarius, 3.39g
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 stg. l., with thunderbolt and spear; shield at her l. side (M3)
RIC 721 (C2). BMC 181. RSC 264. BNC 169.
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.
