Domitian RIC-741
AR Denarius, 3.45g
Rome mint, 92-93 AD
RIC 741 (C3). BMC 205. RSC 279.
Obv: IMP CAES DOMIT AVG GERM P M TR P XII; Head of Domitian, laureate, bearded, r.
Rev: IMP XXII COS XVI CENS P P P; Minerva stg. l., with thunderbolt and spear, shield at her l. side (M3)
Acquired from Zuzim, April 2014.

92 AD saw the largest denarius issues of Domitian's reign. This coin was minted after his 14 September accession date when he became TR P XII. Remarkably, Domitian did not hold the consulship in 93, so this issue cannot be dated as closely as normal and extends to 13 September 93, dated by his tribunician title only.

A denarius struck at a time of massive production. The style is not high quality, but is quite solid considering the volume of the issue.
