Domitian RIC-118
AR Quinarius, 1.52g
Rome mint, 81- early 82 AD
RIC 118 (C). BMC 57. RSC 625.
Obv: IMP CAES DOMITIANVS AVG PM; Head of Domitian, laureate, r.
Rev: VICTORIA AVGVST (anti-clockwwise, outwardly, from high l.); Victory std. l., with wreath and palm
Acquired from Dmitry Markov, December 2017.

This undated quinarius is part of Domitian's first issue of quinarii coined early in the reign. The style and silver fineness of 80% indicate it was struck before the great coinage reform of 82 when the silver fineness was increased to 99%. Probably the most common variant of the type from the issue, 'common' being a relative term here!

Darkly toned and in fine early style. Punch-mark(?) in obverse field.
