Domitian RIC 94
AR Denarius, 3.12g
Rome mint, 82 AD
RIC 94 (R). BMC 32. RSC 598.
Obv: IMP CAES DOMITIANVS AVG P M; Head of Domitian, laureate, bearded, r.
Rev: TR POT COS VIII P P; Altar, garlanded and lighted
Acquired from Timeline Originals, March 2012.

A unique to Domitian pulvinar reverse type as Augustus. The altar reverse is much more commonly found as a type for Domitian as Caesar under Titus, this specimen is one of the few examples as Augustus I've seen in trade.

The coin is also part of the last issue minted in early 82 before the fineness of the precious metal coinage was increased.
