Domitian as Caesar under Titus RIC II T0272
Domitian as Caesar. 79-81 A.D. AR Quinarius. Rome Mint 80-81 A.D. (1.59g, 15.7m, 6h). Obv: CAESAR DIVI F DOMITIANVS COS VII, laureate head r. Rev: VICTORIA AVGVST (clockwise in), Victory adv. r. with wreath and palm. RIC II T272 (R).

A rare quinarius issued for Domitian as Caesar under Titus. It is through Domitianís coinage with Divi F. that scholars determine Vespasianís deification likely took place in 80 A.D. It appears the precious metal coinage of Titus was largely restricted to the first half of 80 A.D., perhaps because of the great fire in Rome.
