Domitian RIC-773
AR Denarius, 3.38g
Rome mint, 95 AD
RIC 773 (C2). BMC 226. RSC 286.
Obv: IMP CAES DOMIT AVG GERM P M TR P XIIII; Head of Domitian, laureate, bearded, r.
Rev: IMP XXII COS XVII CENS P P P; Minerva stg. l., with spear (M4)
Acquired from Forvm Ancient Coins, September 2014.

This denarius records Domitian's 17th consulship, dating it between January and September 95. The issue it is from is one which wholly consists of the four standard Minerva types with no deviations. The production levels at the Rome mint remained high in 95, possibly because of a third Pannonian war Domitian waged in 95-96.

It's a good example of the late portrait style featuring a supremely quaffed Domitian.

Nice coin David! One of the many I had looked at before settling on some of my recent choices. Glad to see you got it.
