Domitian RIC-102
AR Denarius, 2.81g
Rome mint, 82 AD
Obv: IMP CAES DOMITIANVS AVG P M; Head of Domitian, laureate, bearded, r.
Rev: TR POT COS VIII P P; Tripod with fillets; above, dolphin
RIC 102 (C2). BMC 30. RSC 594 corr. BNC 33.
Acquired from Aegean Numismatics, July 2011.

A reverse type that is part of the last issue of denarii Domitian minted in early 82 AD before the coinage reform which improved the quality and fineness of the coinage. RSC incorrectly places ravens on tripod. For Domitian the ravens are found only on RIC 5.

Better in hand than the photo suggests. A worn but respectable denarius.
