Domitian as Caesar RIC II V1492
Domitian as Caesar. 69-81 A.D. AR Denarius. Uncertain Asian Mint (o mint) 76 A.D. (3.07g, 18.5mm, 6h). Obv: CAESAR AVG F DOMITANVS, laureate head right. Rev: COS IIII across field; Eagle stg. facing on garlanded base, wings open, head right. RIC II V1492 (R), BMC V487, RSC 45c.

The Flavians mysterious o mint was likely in Ephesus given stylistic links with earlier issues from that mint and the use of an annulet similar to the o in the last issue from 74 A.D.. This example has the same dies as the Oxford example illustrated in the updated RIC, previously owned by Curtis Clay, and coming from the BMC collection through Bob Arnold before that. The small number of dies from this mint speaks to the o mints limited output.

Same dies, but better condition, than my former specimen, which I had acquired from the Bob Arnold Collection, who had traded it from the BM (=BMC pl. 17.18 ). I sold it to Oxford, and from Oxford it is now illustrated in the new RIC, pl. 80, 1492!
