Domitian RIC-742
AR Denarius, 3.40g
Rome mint, 92-93 AD
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 spear (M4)
RIC 742 (C3). BMC 207. RSC 278. BNC 186.

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.

Stylistically this portrait exhibits the typical characteristics of the issue.
