A bronze As from Emperor Domitian. Infamous for being a tyrant, he was assassinated in 96 CE and the Roman Senate passed a Damnatio Memoriae which is a censorship of his work and removal of his likeness including coins. This Ae As is in beautiful shape with a deep rich green patina that covers the coin making it extremely eye appealing. Well centered, the full obverse legend of Domitian's name can be read clearly. A very strong strike leaves a high relief portrait with many fine details.
