Domitian as Caesar RIC II V1081
Domitian as Caesar. 70-81 A.D. AR Denarius. Rome Mint 79 A.D. to 24 June. (3.02g, 18.9m, 6h ). Obv: CɅESɅR ɅVG F DOMITINVS COS VI, laureate head right. Rev: PRINCEPS IVVENTVTIS, hands clasped over Aquila on prow. RIC II V1081, RSC 393, BMC V269.

The obverse legend should read DOMITIANVS, but the die engraver forgot the ďAĒ in this example. Still, itís in a great state of preservation for a common coin of Domitian as Caesar in the last months of Vespasianís life.
