Domitian Æ As, 9.62g Rome mint, 86 AD Obv: IMP CAES DOMIT AVG GERM COS XII CENS PER P P; Head of Domitian, laureate, bearded, r., with aegis Rev: S C in field; Mars adv. l., with Victory and trophy RIC 496 (C). BMC 392. BNC -. Acquired from Sam Sloat Coins, August 2021. This Mars reverse was struck for Domitian's asses for a short period between 85-87 AD. No doubt it was part of the massive Germania Capta series struck on the bronzes at the time. It copies a reverse design previously struck for Vespasian's sestertii. Despite the wear, the stylish portrait still shines through. Feel free to share your Mars/Victory coins!
