When this coin was struck, Domitilla was already long dead. She was the only daughter of Vespasian and Flavia Domitilla and sister to Titus and Domitian. When she died at the tender age of 21 her father had not yet become emperor. She was deified by her brother Domitian and renamed Augusta. Fortuna, shown on the reverse was the goddess of fortune and luck.
