Domitian RIC II 0029
Domitian. 81-96 A.D. Rome Mint. 81 A.D. (3.30g, 19.2mm, 5h). Obv: IMP CAES DOMITIANVS AVG PONT, laureate head r. Rev: COS VII DES VIII PP, Minerva standing left with Victory and spear; at fee, shield. About VF. RIC II 29 (R3). Ex Harry N. Sneh Collection.

The RIC lists this as R3 with the only other known specimin held in the C. Clay collection. That coin is listed, but not pictured in the plates of the updated RIC. That specimen is from the same dies as this one and has the same 5 o'clock die axis. There is at least one other specimin out there in a private collection I am aware of, and more may surface as time goes on.

A most desirable addition! I love these "PONT" denarii.
