    With the two Vespasian Judea Capta denarii played in CIT Round 1 by @Dafydd and @zumbly, I guess I was kind of "tuned in" to these types and that it was used by a few of the emperor's. I ended up coming across this well-used AE Judea Capta type from Domitian at decent price, so snatched it up.

    Domitian, Judea Capta type, AE local denomination,
    Struck around 83 AD, Caesarea Maritima mint in Judea

    Obverse: [IMP DOMITIANVS CAES AVG GERMANICVS], Laureate head of Domitian left.
    Reverse: Minerva in flowing gown advances left holding trophy in right hand and shield and spear in left.
    References: Hendin 1455, RPC II 2305
    Size: 23.7mm, 9.74g

    I'd love to see your other non-traditional Judea Capta types! And the traditional ones are obviously ok here too.

    Unfortunately, I only have the typical type:
    Silver denarius, RIC II, 2.8g, Rome mint, 69 - 70 A.D.; obverse IMP CAESAR VESPASIANVS AVG, laureate head right; reverse IVDAEA, Jewess seated right, mourning, veiled, supporting chin with left hand, trophy of captured arms behind her.

    I'll take a different approach to this. Here is a Domitian Germania Capta type which strongly echoes his father's Judaea Capta denarius.

    D331lg.jpg Domitian
    AR Denarius, 3.20g
    Rome mint, 85 AD
    RIC 331 (R2). BMC 82. RSC 181.
    Obv: IMP CAES DOMIT AVG GERM P M TR P IIII; Bust of Domitian, laureate, bearded, r., with aegis
    Rev: IMP VIIII COS XI CENS POTES P P; Germania seated r. on shield; below, broken spear
    Ex Roma Auction V, 23 March 2013, lot 728.

    Well-used but still lovely. Neat pickup! I’d like one of these too someday.

    What a superb looking coin and Germania certainly has the "woe is me" look about her!

    Here's mine. With a certain gummy "patina" that is the trademark of a recognizable VCoins dealer. Oh well. I still like the coin, and I'm wiser about fake patinas.

    And here's my Vespasian denarius. Thankfully, no fake patina. ;-)
