A common denarius of Domitian in very good condition. The legends are complete and sharp, and there is very little wear, even on the highest points. 88 A.D. was the probable year of the Secular Games, and also saw a revolt in Upper Germany. 89 A.D. saw Domitian in Germany, a victory over the Dacians, and a double triumph.
