    6. Domitian was an ambitious emperor, initiating a substantial building program to restore Rome, and shoring up the empire's border defenses. So it's not surprising that we find Minerva on his coinage. She was the goddess of strategic warfare, that is of defense and deterrence. The Romans equated her with Athena, and she was one of the three deities of the Capitoline Triad, along with Jupiter and Juno.

    This is a tremendous coin, struck in excellent style, perfectly centered on a large flan, lightly toned, with only a bit of circulation wear at the high points of the laurel wreath, and full inscriptions. An example of this quality could easily fetch over $200 at auction – compare to sold coins at CNG here. $175
