Domitian RIC-764
AR Denarius, 3.51g
Rome mint, 93-94 AD
Obv: IMP CAES DOMIT AVG GERM P M TR P XIII; Head of Domitian, laureate, bearded, r.
Rev: IMP XXII COS XVI CENS P P P; Minerva stg. l., with spear (M4)
RIC 764 (C3). BMC 220. RSC 282. BNC 195.
Ex Solidus, eBay, 3 December 2013.

The early 90s was a period when large numbers of denarii were struck, probably the largest issues of the reign. Although this is a very common coin it is in uncommonly fine style and condition. There were many hurriedly prepared dies struck during this time, fortunately this is one of the better ones.

A wonderful coin in hand.
