    Description

    Domitian as Caesar. 70-81 AD. Denarius, 3.18g (12h). Ephesus, 71 AD. Obv: DOMITIANVS - CAES[AR AVG F] Bare-headed, cuirassed bust right, seen from front, aegis and Medusa head on cuirass, shoulder flaps of both shoulders shown left and right of the aegis. Rx: CONCORDIA - AVG Ceres, veiled, seated left, holding two wheat ears and poppy in right hand and cornucopia in left, EPHE ligate in exergue. RIC 1446 (C). RPC 847 (14 specimens). BM 470. Paris 195. Cohen 38 corr. (20 Fr.). Near Mint State.

    Domitian's rare denarii from Ephesus all show this elaborate bust type, cuirassed, seen from front, with aegis and Medusa head on the cuirass, and with the shoulder flaps on both shoulders shown. BMC, RPC, and RIC all inaccurately describe this type as "draped and cuirassed, with aegis"; in fact the paludamentum ("drapery") is not shown.
