Domitian RIC-677
AR Denarius, 2.91g
Rome mint, 88-89 AD (sixth issue)
Obv: IMP CAES DOMIT AVG GERM P M TR P VIII; Head of Domitian, laureate, bearded, r.
Rev: IMP XXI COS XIIII CENS P P P; Minerva stg. l., with spear (M4)
RIC 677 (R2). BMC -. RSC -. BNC -.
Ex Private Collection.

A very rare denarius from the scarce sixth issue of 88-89, perhaps struck for only a few weeks or days prior to 14 September 89, upon which Domitian became TRP VIIII. The first Pannonian War may account for the rapid succession of imperial acclamations during this time period.

A few marks, but still has some good eye appeal in hand.
