Domitian RIC 01
AR Denarius, 3.36g
Rome mint, 81 AD
RIC 1 (C). BMC p. 298 note. RSC 553.
Obv: IMP CAESAR DOMITIANVS AVG; Head of Domitian, laureate, bearded, r.
Rev: TR P COS VII; Curule chair; above, wreath
Acquired from Forvm Ancient Coins, January 2010.

This pulvinaria type is a carryover reverse from Titus that Domitian continued upon his accession. The only titles present here are IMP, AVG, TR P, and COS; titles he would have assumed immediately upon Titus' death, placing this coin very early in the reign.
