Domitian RIC-604
AR Denarius, 3.18g
Rome mint, 88 AD
RIC 604 (C). BMC 137. RSC 70.
Obv: IMP CAES DOMIT AVG GERM P M TR P VIII; Head of Domitian, laureate, bearded, r.
Rev: COS XIIII across field; Column inscribed LVD SAEC FEC; all within laurel wreath
Acquired from Cerberus Ancient Coins, October 2010.

Minted in 88 AD to commemorate the Secular Games Domitian held in that same year, the reverse actually shows the column which the senate dedicated in honour of the games. A wonderful example of a coin illustrating a moment in history.
