Domitian RIC II 0059
Domitian 81-96 A.D. AR Denarius. Rome Mint. 81, 13 Sept.-31 Dec A.D.. (2.97g, 18.5mm, 6h). Obv: IMPP CAES DIVI VESP F DOMITIAN AVG P M, laureate head right. Rev: TR P COS VII DES VIII P P, Minerva advancing right with spear and shield. RIC II 59 (R2).

Minted in Domitians first year as emperor, this type depicts his patron deity, Minerva. Although Domitians Minerva coins are quite common, RIC II ranks this particular issue as R2. "The rare aspect of this coin is the filiation DIVI VESP F in the obv. legend."- Curtis Clay. This is one of the nicer coins in my collection with very little wear, even on the highest points of the devices.

The rare aspect of this coin is the filiation DIVI VESP F in the obv. legend, which in this issue is not usually present.

Tom Cederlind would have remarked that the ancient slash across the throat was the mark of damnatio memoriae.
