Note BMCRE p. 252* and RIC 76 give the rev. legend as IVVENT, but whenever it is visible it is IVVENTVT. There is at least one di link between the two types of Domitian (see p. 8). For a plated example, see L 1932-6-4-2, 8.73 g. Three cities occur for this type and 862, e.g. Imhoof-Blumer, GRMK p. 8.
