Been looking for a Domitia coin for a while now and this sweet little bronze provincial called to me...Thought I'd share it..
Nice portrait with her full name readable and also a well centred reverse.
It was minted in Eumeneia between 81-96 A.D, a town positioned on the river Claucus in the ancient West region of ancient Asia Minor, part of modern day Turkey. The town was named after Eumenis II by his brother the king of Pergamon Attalus II.

Phrygia, Eumeneia (near Civril, Turkey). Domitia, 81-96 AD. Bronze AE 15mm (2.47 gm).
Obv.: ΔOMITIA CEBACTH, Draped bust right. Hair rolled in front and in que behind,
Rev.: ΚΛ ΤEΡEΝΤΥΛΛΑ ΑΡΧΙE /EΥΜE-ΝE-ΩΝ, Kybele enthroned to left, Patera in extended right hand, resting left forearm and hand on Tympanum (drum) at near side
RPC II 1388. Rare. gVF.

Nice score there, Paul. Good looking coin. Said it before: If I collected Romans, I'd definitely focus on Provincials bronzes.

Thanks Bob,
Yes I agree the Provincials certainly have more interesting reverses and they also allow you to pick up scarcer emperors/empressess and reachable prices at least on my budget.

That's a nice coin. Here's a Domitia of mine from Biblical city Philadelphia, Lydia, 15mm, 2.8 grams, RPC II 1336. Sorry the pic is a little out of focus. I have a collection of Roman Provincial coins from cities in the Bible. Some cities issued a lot of coins and are common, others rare and hard to get. A few of my coins are listed/pictured on the RPC site.

Two coins from Phrygia tonight. What are the chances of that? Another superbly detailed coin, Paul.
