    Parthia Returns Standards

    Domitian, as Caesar (AD 69-81). AV aureus (19mm, 7.28 gm, 5h). NGC Choice XF 5/5 - 4/5. Rome, AD 77-78. CAESAR AVG F-DOMITIANVS, laureate head of Domitian right / COS V, Parthian captive kneeling right, presenting Roman standard with vexillum. RIC II, Part 1, (Vespasian) 959. Calic├│ 819. Perfectly centered on satiny flan with lustrous flow lines.

    The reverse type of this Flavian issue is copied from the coinage of Augustus (RIC I 288). It reflects the dynasty's policy of promoting the cult of the first emperor and also subtly alludes to Vespasian's victories in the East.
