Domitian RIC II 0339
Domitian. 81-96 A.D. Rome Mint. 85 A.D. (3.39g, 21.4mm, 6h). Obv: IMP CAES DOMIT AVG GERM PM TR P IIII, laureate head right with aegis. Rev: IMP VIIII COS XI CENS POT PP, Minerva standing left with spear (M4). RIC II 339 (R2), BMC 80, RSC 176. Ex Harry N. Sneh via David Atherton.

This scarce Domitian has a wonderfully large flan and full weight and unusual use of the aegis on the obverse portrait. This coin was part of a fourth issue in 85, A.D., all of which are exceedingly scarce (R2 and R3). This was issued after the silver content was again reduced. With TRP IIII, this was probably issued before mid-Sept.
