Domitian RIC II 0659
Domitian. 81-96 A.D. AR Denarius. Rome Mint. 88, 14 Sept.-89, 13 Sept. A.D. (3.25g, 19mm, 6h). Obv: IMP CAES DOMIT AVG GERM PM TRP VIII, laureate head right. Rev: IMP XVII COS XIIII CENS PPP, Minerva standing left with thunderbolt and spear; shield at her left side (M3). RIC II 659 (R). BMC 149, RSC 245.

Denarii of the issues from 88 to 89 A.D. are all fairly scarce. The issues at this time may have been short lived as Domitian rapidly acquired titles possibly evidencing significant military activity.

This coin is indeed 'scarce', however not all issues are rare during the period 88-89 - there are many C3 coins in the fourth issue after all!
