Domitian as Caesar BMCRE 129 (Vesp)


BMCRE 129(Vesp.), RSC 664 Rome mint, 73 A.D. Obv - Head of Domitian, laureate, bearded, r. Rev - No legend. Domitian, togate, cloak flying out behind him, on horse prancing l., extending r. hand and holding vertical sceptre with human head at end, in l. aVF A reverse type issued only for Domitian, most likely a reference to his part in the Judaean triumph of Vespasian and Titus. "while taking part in the Judaean triumph, he rode on a white horse, the conventional mount for young princes on such occasions." (Suetonius, Domitian, ii) A scarce coin of Domitian's part in a very important event in Flavian history. Nice portait with some of the beard still intact and a lively horse on the reverse!
