Domitian RIC II 0075
Domitian, 81-96 A.D. AR Denarius. Rome Mint 81, 13 Sept.-31 Dec. (2.96g, 18mm, 6h). Obv: IMP CAES DIVI VES[P F DOMITIA]N AVG PM, laureate head left. Rev: TR P COS VII DES VIII P P, tripod with fillets; above dolphin. RIC II 75 (R2), RSC 568d, BMC 22 note. Ex Forum.

Another early, and scarce Domitian. It was produced within the first 3 months of Domitians reign, and is another carryover of al type issued under Titus the obverse legend and left facing portrait combination make this a scarce type.

In Flavian coinage, rarity is measured not only by number of examples, but also number of known die combinations. Demonstrating the scarcity of this coin, my example is both an obverse and reverse die match to David Atherton's http://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-97819.

The left-facing portrait is remarkable. I have never seen one of these before.
