02a Domitian as Caesar RIC 791
AR Quinarius (Broken), 1.04g
Rome mint, 75 AD (Vespasian)
RIC 791 (C). BMC 158. RSC 634.
Obv: CAES AVG F DOMIT COS III; Head of Domitian, laureate, bearded, r.
Rev: VICTORIA AVGVSTI; Victory std. l., with wreath and palm
Acquired from GB Collection, June 2016

Quinarii were struck under Vespasian for Domitian Caesar from 73 onwards. This common piece dates to 75 when the largest quinarius issue of the reign was produced.

Broken, but enough of the major devices remain to identify it properly. I think I got the better half.

I've never seen a Quinarius of Domitian!
