AR Denarius (21mm, 3.48g, 6h). Rome mint, undated Commemorative Issue, but struck 82-83, ahiiu.


IMP CAES DOMITIANVS AVG P M, head laureate right; SALVS AVGVST (inwardly, clockwise from low left), Salus seated left on round-backed throne, with two corn ears and a poppy.


RIC 145 (R), BMC 54, RSC 412.


Ex CNG, ex Group SGF.

Analogous to the screaming eagle version of RIC 144, RIC 144a, with this variety I am drawing the distinction between round-backed and square-backed thrones.
