Domitian RIC II 0144
Domitian 81-96 A.D. A.D. AR Denarius. Rome Mint 82-83 A.D. (3.31g, 18.3mm, 6h). Obv: IMP CASES DOMITIANVS AVG PM, laureate head right. Rev: IVPPITER CONSERVATOR, eagle standing front on thunderbolt, wings outspread, head left. RIC II 144 (R).

Despite the flan crack, I like this obverse which has a full and sharp legend. This would have been issued after Domitianís monetary reform returning the silver content of imperial denarii to pre-Neronian times. This also has a wide flan and is well toned.
