Rare Saecular Games Aureus of Domitian Offered at Stack’s Bowers Galleries NYINC Auction

Lot 3122 of the Stack’s Bowers Galleries 2022 NYINC Auction features a very rare  type relating to the Saecular Games (festivities that were held every 110 years following the tradition enacted by Augustus). This wholesome specimen presents an appealing degree of quality and beauty that is not often encountered in the coinage of Domitian, especially his gold emissions. The offered coin is from the Dr. Michael Rogers Collection, Part II and has been graded by NGC as Extremely Fine, with Strike: 5/5 and Surface: 4/5.​
