Domitian, Fouree
Domitian. 81-96 A.D. Fouree Denarius. Unknown Mint. (2.43g, 19.4m, 6h). Obv: IMP CAES DOMIT AVG GERM TP (no R) XI, laureate head right. Rev: IMP XXII COS XVII CENS PPP, Minerva standing left with spear (M4). Ex Warren Esty.

Fourees tend to be common during the Republic and era of the 12 Caesars. Ancient forgeries with a bronze core and silver coating, they were meant to pass as full silver pieces. This example has irregular lettering showing it was not made from official mint dies as some fourees appear to be, but an outright forgery copying a common type of Domitian.
