    Domitian. 81-96 AD. Denarius, Rome, 88/9 AD. Obv: IMP CAES DOMIT AVG - GERM P M TR P VIII Head laureate right. Rx: IMP XVII COS XIIII CENS P P P Minerva standing left holding thunderbolt and spear, shield behind her leaning against her legs. RIC 659 (R ). BM 149. Paris 140. Cohen 245 (2 Fr.). Only one specimen in Reka Devnia hoard. IMP XVII is a scarce acclamation, evidently soon superseded by the even rarer IMP XVIII and then the common IMP XIX. About EF.

    I agree that it is an excellent example of a Domitian denarius.
