Domitian RIC II 0141
Domitian 81-96 A.D. AR Denarius. Rome Mint 82 A.D. (3.45g, 19.9mm, 6h). Obv: IMP CAES DOMITIANVS AVG PM, laureate head right. Rev: TR POT IMP II COS VIII DES VIIII PP, Fortuna stg. l., with rudder and cornucopiae. RIC II 141, BMC 34 RSC 610. Ex Warren Esty.

This is part of the first series of Domitianís reform coinage restoring the fineness and weight of silver and gold to the standards of Augustus. Given the finances of the time, this experiment did not last long. This example has a wonderfully formed flan, little wear, and is a pleasure to hold in hand.
