Domitian RIC II 0322
Domitian. 81-96 A.D. AR Denarius. Rome Mint. 85 A.D. (3.48g, 19.6mm, 6h). Obv: IMP CAES DOMIT AVG GERM PM TRP IIII, laureate head right with aegis. Rev: IMP VIIII COS XI CENSORIA POTESTAT PP, Minerva stg. left, with spear (M4). RIC II 322 (R2). Ex. CNG.

This is an exceedingly rare Domitian, this may be the third known specimen that shares dies with the other two known examples. Domitians Censorial title was added at this time, and began as CENSORIA POTESTAT as seen on this example before being shortened to CENS POTES. Coins with these titles are rare indicating the production may have been short lived. Its also a rare example of the portrait with an aegis.
