Roman Empire, Domitian Unlisted Pax Dupondius
Obv: CAES DIVI VESP F DOMITIAN COS VII
Domitian laureate right
Rev: PAX AVGVST
Pax standing left holding branch and caduceus leaning on cippus.

This coin was minted some time between Domitian's seventh consulship in 80 AD and the death of Titus in 81 AD. The reverse type appears to be identical to RIC II 727 (Vespasian); BMCRE 747 (Vespasian) however, unlike this coin, the listed coin has the obverse inscription CAESAR AVG F DOMITIANVS COS VI. This coin appears therefore to be a continuation of that type after Vespasian's death with a different obverse inscription.
