For similar Bithynian coins under Domitian, see RPC II 632, 653, and 671, which copy Latin legend “Mars” sestertii struck AD 80-82 at an uncertain mint either in Thrace or Bithynia (for discussion of the mints see: A. Burnett, “Regional coinage in Thrace and Bithynia during the Flavian period,” Travaux Le Rider pp. 95-101; Herbert Cahn, “An Imperial mint in Bithynia,” INJ 8 (1984/5), pp. 14-26). In place of the “S C” across the reverse field, however, one finds civic monograms in two parts for Nicaea (“NKA - ΠΡ” ), Nicomedia (“NKO - ΠΡ”), and Prusias ad Hypium (“ΠΡ - YΠ”). No such Domitianic “sestertii” survive from Juliopolis, but the current coin and the obverse die-linked von Aulock specimen (which interestingly transforms Pax of the sestertii into Homonoia) demonstrate a continued interest in appropriating Imperial types for local coinage in Bithynia.
