Domitian as Caesar AR Denarius. Rome Mint 77-78 AD. Obverse: CAESAR AVG F DOMITIANVS, laureate head right; Damnatio Memoriae scrape over cheek, neck and part of legends. Reverse: COS V, She-wolf suckling the twins Remus and Romulus; boat in exergue. RIC II: 961 (Vespasian), BMCRE 240 (Vespasian), RSC 51. Size: 18mm, 3.15g. Numismatic Notes: A scarce type in great shape, with a very interesting Damnatio Memoriae defacement on the obverse! Damnatio Memoriae essentially means "condemnation of memory", in this case someone in ancient times did not like the emperor Domitian, thus he defaced the coin of the emperor!
