Domitian Æ Sestertius, 23.75g Rome mint, 92-94 AD RIC 751 (C2). BMC 464. Obv: IMP CAES DOMIT AVG GERM COS XVI CENS PER P P; Head of Domitian, laureate, bearded, r. Rev: IOVI VICTORI; S C in exergue; Jupiter std. l., with Victory and sceptre Acquired from eBay, May 2019. Ex Degani Coin Shop. Just like the silver and gold, Domitian's aes coinage in the mid 80s settled down to a few predicable reverse types that were annually struck throughout the reign. The Sestertii were dominated by Victory crowning the emperor and the seated Jupiter with Victory, as seen on this coin. 'Jupiter the giver of Victory' was an important propaganda type because of the periodic conflicts on the Northern frontier that flared up form time to time. Domitian did not renew the consulship until 95, so these COS XVI sestertii are imprecisely dated between 92-94, which accounts for their extreme commonness. The most interesting thing about this piece is that it came with a tag from the Venetian coin shop Degani. It was probably picked up by a tourist who wanted a memento from the 'City of Canals'. Not all of our coins are going to be spectacular rarities in pristine condition. Even the worn common ones deserve some respect, I hope I did this one some justice. So, feel free to share your common, worn, and ordinary coins.
