Quadrans anonyme attribué à la période flavienne ou antonine. Ces monnaies sont en fait beaucoup plus rares que ne le laissent paraître les ouvrages généraux. Pour ce type, une attribution à l’époque de Trajan est probable. Le buste est ici cuirassé, nous avons aussi des têtes casquées seules, ou des bustes drapés et cuirassés.

Historical background




Domitian, born in 51, became august in 81, succeeding his brother. In 86, the Capitoline games were organized for the first time. The Flavian Palace is erected on the Palatine. In 88, the secular games were celebrated with pomp. A first campaign is launched on Dacia which ends with a peace of compromise, leaving Decebalus master of the situation. Domitian has just won a brilliant campaign against the Sarmatians and the Suevi (IMP XXII). Agricola died in disgrace on August 23, 93. In 95, Domitian had Flavius Clemens, his cousin, executed. The following year, Domitian will be assassinated at the instigation of his wife and the prefect of the Praetorium.
