Domitian AE
« on: March 31, 2021, 07:30:17 AM »
Hi,
I identify this one of Domitian, as Caesar with probable description is:
Obv: CAES DIVI VESP F DOMITIAN COS VII, laureate head right
Rev: AEQVITAS AVGVST S-C, Aequitas standing half-left, holding scales and rod.
Wt :9.55g
Dia:25.2 mm
Can I have more details of this one?
Thanks,
Saikat

RIC 322 [Titus]; BMCRE 318

Domitian, AE As, struck under Titus. AD 80-81.

Obv: laureate head right CAES DIVI VESP F DOMITIAN COS VII
Rev: Aequitas standing left, holding scales and sceptre. S-C across AEQVITAS AVGVST.

Borrowed the picture from Wildwinds. Slightly different legend.

As far as I can see the OP is RIC#321.....I can see VS at the end of DOMITIAN on the obverse...DOMITIANVS COS VII......

Thank you. That also fits with the missing AVG. I don't have RIC and use Wildwinds.
