08b Domitian as Caesar RIC-1089
AR Quinarius, 1.46g
Rome Mint, 79 AD (Vespasian)
RIC 1089 (R3). BMC - . RSC - .
Obv: CAESAR AVG F DOMITIANVS COS VI; Head of Domitian, laureate, bearded, r.
Rev: VICTORIA AVGVST; Victory std. l., with wreath and palm

An extremely rare quinarius struck for Domitian Caesar in 79. RIC records only one example in Paris and lists the rarity as 'unique', this specimen then is the second known example. Domitian's COS VI coins most likely date towards the end of Vespasian's reign and the beginning of Titus' rule, indicating the issue was struck uninterrupted after Vespasian's death in June.

Struck in good metal in neat and fine style.
