Domitian as Caesar RIC II V1084
Domitian as Caesar. AR Denarius. Rome Mint 79 A.D to 24 June. (3.07g, 19.8m, 6h). Obv: CAESAR AVG F DOMITIANVS COS IV, laureate head right. Rev: PRINCEPTS IVVENTVTIS, Salus standing right, resting on column, feeding snake out of patera. RIC II V1084, BMC V265, RSC 384.

Salus, the Roman goddess of health, often appears on coins when the emperor labors under some type of aliment. This was minted in the months before Vespasianís death on June 24, and Domitian had no known aliment at this time, so it could be for the benefit of his father.
