Domitian, Brother of Titus

Roman Imperial Aureus AD 86 Domitianus, 9,330.00 US$

Final Ruler of the Flavian Dynasty

Domitian, brother of Titus, was a Roman Emperor who ruled from 81 AD to 96 AD.

He was the third and final ruler of the Flavian dynasty, which was founded by his father Vespasian. Domitian was known for his autocratic rule and his harsh treatment of the Roman Senate. However, he also oversaw significant public works projects, such as the construction of the Domitian Stadium, and was praised for his military campaigns in Germany and Britannia.

He was assassinated in 96 AD by members of his own court who were dissatisfied with his rule and his death marked the end of the Flavian dynasty and the beginning of a period of instability in the Roman Empire. His reign was succeeded by Nerva, who initiated a period of political and social reform known as the Nerva-Antonine dynasty.

During the reign of Domitian, a variety of coins were minted featuring his image and various designs and many of these coins can be found on MA-Shops.

Some of the most common types of Domitian coins include:
Silver Denarius: This was the most common type of coin in circulation during Domitian’s reign. It featured his portrait on the obverse (front) and various designs on the reverse (back).
Gold Aureus: This was a gold coin that was minted in limited quantities. It was valued at 25 silver denarii and featured a portrait of Domitian on the obverse and various designs on the reverse.
Bronze Sestertius: This was a large bronze coin that was worth four silver denarii. It featured Domitian’s portrait on the obverse and various designs on the reverse.
Bronze Dupondius: This was a smaller bronze coin that was worth two sestertii. It featured Domitian’s portrait on the obverse and various designs on the reverse.
Bronze As: This was the lowest denomination of Roman coin and was made of bronze. It featured Domitian’s portrait on the obverse and various designs on the reverse.
These coins are highly sought after by collectors and can be found in various conditions and at varying price points depending on their rarity and condition.
