Women of the Caesars, by Giorgio Giacosa, published in the 1970s. See https://www.cointalk.com/threads/ju...firm-the-ric-ii-1-number.372999/#post-5380079. By pure coincidence, a provincial coin of Domitia -- with her husband on the other side -- arrived in my mailbox today. It's from Anazarbus in the Roman province of Cilicia, located in the far southeastern corner of Anatolia. And I don't see any of the character defects in her face that Signore Giacosa observed! Domitian and Domitia, AE 22.7, 93/94 AD, Cilicia, Anazarbus. Obv. Laureate head of Domitian to right, AYTO KAI ΘΕ YI ΔOMITIANOC CE ΓEP around from upper right / Rev. Draped bust of Domitia left, date IB P (= Year 112, = 93/94 AD)* across fields, star behind head, KAICAPEΩN ΔOMETIA CEBACTH around from lower left. RPC [Roman Provincial Coinage] Vol. II 1749; RPC Online at ttps://rpc.ashmus.ox.ac.uk/coins/2/1749 ; SNG Levante 1367 [Levante, E., Sylloge Nummorum Graecorum, Switzerland I, Levante-Cilicia (Zurich, 1986)], BMC 21 Lycaonia, Anazarbus 9 p. 32 [Hill, G.F., A Catalog of the Greek Coins in the British Museum, Greek Coins of Lycaonia, Isauria, and Cilicia (London, 1900)]. 22.7 mm., 10.09 g. (Purchased from Zuzim Inc, Brooklyn, NY Jan. 2021; exported from Israel 2016 pursuant to IAA [Israel Antiquities Authority] Export License No. 531619, April 17, 2016.) (Double die-match[?] to RPC II 1749, specimen no. 16; see https://rpc.ashmus.ox.ac.uk/coins/2/1749.) *Year 1 of the era was 19 BCE, the date of the founding of Anazarbus after a visit by Augustus. Here's the dealer's photo: In hand, the color is much more green than the dealer's photo. Here's my attempt at showing the color with a bit more fidelity. taken this afternoon in natural light. If you zoom in, you can also see the raised deposits on both sides, especially on the faces (they look like they have terrible rashes!) more clearly. Hopefully they're just verdigris; they look stable. And I still like the coin! I am fairly sure that my coin is a double die match to RPC 1749, specimen no. 16 (from a Sep. 2019 Roma Numismatics auction) -- the example chosen to illustrate the type on the first page of RPC's description of it. Here's the photo of the coin. The surface is obviously much nicer and smoother than mine, but I think it's a match. At least on the reverse, if not on both sides. If anyone disagrees, please let me know: If mine is a die match to this RPC 1749 specimen, then it should also be a match to @Roman Collector's very nice example, which he posted in a thread last year. See https://www.cointalk.com/threads/nice-domitian-domitia-provincial-Æ-from-anazarbus.349511/ . This coin, together with the dupondius of Julia Titi, brings the total number of Roman empresses and other royal women for whom I have at least one coin, Imperial or Provincial, to 24: Livia (assuming she's represented by Pax on the reverse of the Tiberius "Tribute Penny"), Julia Titi, Domitia, Sabina, Faustina I, Faustina II, Lucilla, Crispina, Julia Domna, Plautilla, Julia Paula, Aquilia Severa, Julia Soaemias, Julia Maesa, Sallustia Orbiana, Julia Mamaea, Tranquillina, Otacilia Severa, Herennia Etruscilla, (Diva) Mariniana, Salonina, Severina, Galeria Valeria, and Fausta. I certainly will never be able to afford to buy examples of all the remaining empresses/royal women depicted on Roman coins, but I think there are at least a few more I can probably buy one of these days! Please post your own coins of Domitia (whether Imperial or Provincial), or, if you don't have any, your Provincial coins of Domitian. I want to see if they look as "odious," "bestial," and "cold and hateful" on any of them as Signore Giacosa claims!
