    Weighing 16.25 g., this bronze coin shows Emperor Domitian on obverse, and it was struck at Antioch. I acquired it to raise my collection of the 12 Caesars to seven. I still miss 5 of them. Happy to share my first Domitian among my coin-friends. Domit O.JPG DomiRom R.JPG

    Nice! You've really been making headway in your 12 Caesars in just a short amount of time lately! Way too go!

    Here's my nicest Domitian from Antioch:

    Those coin-friends who have 8 or 17 or 31 of Domitian coins, do they all have necessarily the complete set of the 12 Caesars? At least one of each.

    I have 3 sets of the 12 Caesars. 2 of them are in silver and 1 has 2 bronze coins.

    I do. I'll have to check how many 12 Caesar sets I have, but I have no Caligula in silver and only a provincial silver for Otho.

    Since most of the 12 Caesar's were more closely related to Antony than to Augustus I thought it was appropriate to include Antony in my 12 Caesar's +1 group shot.

    Hmmm, this got me a wee bit curious, so I counted my Domitians. Both Imperial and provincial I have 224.

    And I'm still not satisfied!
