Domitian, Fouree 2
Domitian 81-96 A.D. Fouree Denarius. Unofficial Mint. (2.81g, 18m, 5h). Obv: IMP CAES DOMIT AVG GERM PM TRP XI, laureate head right. Rev: IMI XXII [] PPP, Minerva standing left with thunderbolt and spear, shield at her l. side (M3). Cf RIC II 737.

Without the breaks in the silver, the unofficial lettering would give this away as a fouree, as would the die axis and light weight. Interestingly, this coin mimics RIC II 737 minted in 92 A.D. which RIC lists as vary rare (R2). IMP XXII was Domitianís final imperial acclamation.

Good style for an unofficial issue!
