Domitian RIC II 0784
Domitian 81-96 A.D. AR Denarius. Rome Mint. Sept. 14, 95-Sept 13, 96 A.D. (3.08g, 17.2mm, 6h). Obv: IMP CAES DOMIT AVG GERM PM TR P XV, laureate head right. Rev: IMP XXII COS XVII CENS P P P, altar, with two soldiers, flanked by aquilae, under each Aquila on top of altar is seated captive. RIC II 784 (R2).

Within days of his death, the Senate decreed Damnatio Memoriae for Domitian. Despite the fact this coin was minted at the very end of his reign, it clearly saw circulation despite the Senates action. This is one of the new reverse types for Domitians 15th Tribunican year.

I agree with D. Atherton and Marsman. First time I've seen this.
