Domitian as Caesar RIC II V0961
Domitian as Caesar 69-81 A.D. AR Denarius. Rome Mint. 77-78 A.D. (3.43g 18.6mm 6h). Obv: CAESAR AVG F DOMITIANVS, laureate head right. Rev: COS V high across field; Wolf and twins, in exergue, boat. RIC II V 961, BMC V240, RSC 51.

A common coin of Domitian as Caesar, Iíve been looking for an example for my collection for some time. This one fit the bill balancing price and condition. While worn, all the major devices and legends are there. This was a new reverse type during this time, and most of the Flavian reverses during this period were antiquarian in style if not direct copies of older coins.
