Sestertius COTD

Nothing really beats an honest first century sestertius. Domitian in numismatic circles is primarily known for his denarii, but he also struck some mighty fine bronzes, many of which are in superb style. I think my latest addition is such a coin. COTD? I humbly think so.

A fantastic portrait that I suspect is even better in hand.  Very nice addition David.

That is just lovely. The depiction of Minerva is particularly artistic.
