Domitian RIC 95
AR Denarius, 3.03g
Rome mint, 82 AD
RIC 95 (C). BMC 28A. RSC 595.
Obv: IMP CAES DOMITIANVS AVG P M; Head of Domitian, laureate, bearded, r.
Rev: TR POT COS VIII P P; Curule chair, wreath above
Acquired from Lucernae, eBay, December 2015.

Coined at the very beginning of 82, just before Domitian overhauled the mint and increased the fineness of the denarius. The type is a continuation of the 'pulvinaria' series, most likely struck as a stop-gap until the mint master finished preparations for the new reverse designs.

In good early veristic style with a rich dark tone.
