Domitian Æ Obol, 4.27g Alexandria mint, 82-83 AD Obv: ΑΥΤΟΚ ΚΑΙΣΑΡ ΔΟΜΙΤΙΑΝΟΣ ΣΕΒ; Head of Domitian, laureate, r. Rev: LΒ; Hawk standing, r., with head-dress RPC 2486 (5 spec.). Emmett 317.2. Dattari-Savio 618. Acquired from Copper Penny Galleries, April 2021. Ex CNG E113, 11 May 2005, lot 103. From the Garth R. Drewry Collection. Ex Antioch Associates 38, 4 March 2002, lot 118. Ex Hank Lindgren Collection. Various different references and catalogues identify the reverse as depicting either a hawk or hooded-falcon. The bird in question is wearing a pschent crown and is almost certainly a reference to the Egyptian god Horus. The Lanner falcon, native to Egypt and north Africa, was likely the bird upon which the ancient Egyptians based their depictions of Horus and is the one shown on the obol's reverse. Feel free to share your numismatic hawks, falcons, etc.
