Rome mint, 90 AD
Obv: IMP CAES DOMIT AVG GERM P M TR P VIIII; 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 691 (C2). BMC 167. RSC 260. BNC 159.

Minerva, Domitian's patron goddess, shown here in one of her four standard poses represented on his precious metal coinage.

Good example of mid period artistry, not flashy but very idealistic.
