Domitian RIC II 0343
Domitian. 81-96 A.D. AR Denarius. Rome Mint 85 A.D. (3.22g, 20.4mm, 6h). Obv: IMP CAES DOMIT AVG GERM PM TR P V, laureate head right. Rev: IMP VIIII COS XI CENS POT P P, Minerva standing right on capital of rostral column, with spear and shield, to right, owl (M2). RIC II 342 (R2).

A common reverse from a scarce issue in 85 A.D. This was issued just after the silver coinage was refined again, this time reducing the fineness back to Neronian standards. 85 A.D. saw the addition of the Censorial title for Domitian reduced here to CENS POT. This specimen is a much better color than the picture shows and is well centered with complete legends.

Good coin. You mistyped RIC 342 in the description. It should be RIC 343.
