THESSALY, Thessalian League. Domitian. 81-96. Assarion (Bronze, 18mm, 5.66 g 7). ΔΟΜΙΤΙΑΝΟΝ ΚΑΙΣΑΡΑ ΘΕΣΣΑΛΟΙ Laureate head of Domitian to right Rev. ΔΟΜΙΤΙΑΝ ΣΕΒΑΣΣΤΗΝ Draped bust of Domitia to right, her hair in a long queue tied up at the back. Burrer 21. RPC II 277. A splendid piece with a glossy, dark patina. Centering mark on the reverse, otherwise, about extremely fine.

The League coinage for Domitian must have been quite abundantly struck. It circulated over a wide area, and for a very long time, almost certainly until the reign of Gallienus.
