Domitian RIC II 0073
Domitian, 81-96 A.D. AR Denarius. Rome Mint 81, 13 Sept.-31 Dec. (2.96g, 18mm, 6h). Obv: IMP CAES DOMITIAN AVG PONT, laureate head right. Rev: TR P COS VII DES VIII P P, tripod with fillets; above dolphin. RIC II 73 (R3), RSC 568b.

This is another early, and very scarce Domitian with only one other specimen known to the authors of the updated RIC II. It was produced within the first 3 months of Domitianís reign, and is another carry over type issued under Titus. Despite some slight metal flaws, this example maintains good detail, and the beard is stellar.
