zoom view

Denomination : Silver denarius. Mint : Rome.

Date : late in AD 91 or early AD 92.

Size : 18.2 x 18.8 mm   Weight : 3.30 grams.

Reference : RSC-259.

Grade :  VF but with a mark on Domitian's head and an area of depressed metal (possibly a flan flaw) to the right of Minerva.

Obverse : Head of Domitian right, with IMP CAES DOMIT AVG GERM P M TR P XI around.

Reverse : Minerva standing left holding spear, with IMP XXI COS XVI CENS P P P around. 

The spacing on the obverse inscription makes me wonder if the obverse die might have been originally cut for TR P X  and later an I was added to make it into TR P XI.
