THESSALY, Magnetes. Domitian. AD 81-96. Æ Diassarion (23mm, 7.56 g, 5h). ΔΟΜΙΤΙΑΝΟC K[AICAP Μ]ΑΓΝΗΤωΝ around from right, laureate head of Domitian right / ΔΟΜΙΤΙΑΝΟC KAIC[AP ΜΑΓΝΗΤ] around from right, laureate head of unknown prince right. RPC 275.3 (this coin). Rough brown surfaces. Near Fine. Extremely rare, the third known.

Ex BCD Collection (Triton XV, 3 January 2012), lot 429.4.

“Rogers thinks that this coin consists of two obverses, i.e. two portraits of Domitian. This would not be impossible as we have the examples of Nero (see lots 429.1 and 429.3 above); also, Domitian appears with Domitia on the Thessalian League coins. However, the authors of RPC do not recognize anyone on the second portrait and this writer follows this attribution as being the latest (and most authoritative).” [BCD]
