    Interesting Muled Domitian Aureus

    Domitian (AD 81-96). AV aureus (20mm, 6.98 gm, 7h). ANACS VF 30, ex-jewelry. Rome, January-September AD 87. IMP CAES DOMIT AVG-GERM P M TR P VII, laureate head of Domitian right / IMP XIII COS XII-CENS P P P, Minerva standing facing, head left, inverted spear in right hand, resting left on hip. Mule of RIC II 520. Calicó 887 (obverse); RIC II 459. Calicó 880 (reverse).

    The obverse legend appears to end in VII, however, under magnification these last letters also appear to be recut over a different legend ending. VI is the proper tribunician year for the consular year XII reverse legend, so perhaps the obverse die still had too much useful life at the end of AD 86 to scrap and was recut to be used in AD 87, but paired with a reverse die from AD 86 that was not updated with the correct XIII consular year.
