Hello everyone.

I wasn't satisfied with my old gallery, so I've decided a new start, newly organized and with better pictures.

The first coin of this new era is a rare dupondius of Domitian as Caesar under Titus, just arrived today.

I love the reverse: look at Vesta holding the Palladium!

Kind regards

Alberto

Very good idea, Alberto, as (quite funny) I'm also in the process of doing so for my Flavians (but I'm a little bit more lazzy than you).

Hello everyone.

The MARS VICTOR type was started on sestertii by Vitellius first.

Vespasian resumed it on his early sestertii.

Domitian repeated it on medium bronzes (asses and dupondii) issued in 85-87 A.D..

I would like to share a couple of examples from recent additions to my flavian collection.

Kind regards.

Alberto

Hello everyone,

thanks to Pierre and Joe for their nice comments.

Today I've added three rare Domitian denarii: RIC 786 var. (Maia), RIC 338 & 339 (Minerva standing with spear).

Only 786 & 338 are really new, since I've already had 339 in my collection. I uploaded it since it is from the same issue of 338, with the only difference of the aegis on 339.

Both are rated R2 in the new R.I.C., but I believe that 338 (without aegis) is rarer.

Kind regards

Alberto

Fantastic denarii! The RIC 338 and 786 are indeed exceptional rarities.

I look forward to seeing the rest of your collection uploaded again.

Alberto,
if you move on this way, you must be prepared to write a new book (RIC III Huh) dedicated to Domitian, Sir .....
Sincere congrats, Pierre

Thanks David.

Recently I've been busy submitting many coins from my collection to either Coinproject and AsiaMinorCoins, therefore I must admit that I've neglected my gallery.

I will soon come back to it.

Hello everyone.

Today I've added four AE provincial coins, struck in Ephesus during the last years of Domitian reign, and meant to celebrate the alliance with Smyrna.

All of them are of fine style; the Domitia's portrait is the best in my collection.

Kind regards

Alberto

Hello everyone.

Today I've added three very rare brass coins of Domitian as Caesar, struck in an Uncertain Asia Minor mint toward the end of Vespasian's reign.

One is unpublished so far.

Kind regards

Alberto

Hello everyone.

This is my first denarius in over a month, since I've been dealing with AE and provincials mostly.

RIC 342 it's a rare issue of 85 A.D., a magical year for Domitian coinage, with CENS POT on reverse legend as in AE coinage second issue of the same year.

This coin is missing in R.S.C. as well as in major collections.

Kind regards

Alberto

Hello everyone.

Today I've got a Vespasian tetradrachm in the mail, so I've decided to add a few of them to my gallery.

I love these big silver pieces.

Kind regards

Alberto

Thanks to everyone for nice comments.

I know I'm breaking a rule of my roman ancestors (don't do twice the same), but I have a few other Vespasian's tets to share.

Kind regards

Hello everyone.

Today I've added three flavian AE from Thessalonica in Macedonia.

My last acquisition is Vespasian's RPC 319. The Editors of RPC II knew (eight, edit) thirteen specimen of this coin, yet no one with a fully readable obverse legend. Therefore, mine could be the first known.

Kind regards

Alberto
