Between 17 December 2021 and 22 May 2022 the exhibition 'Emperor Domitian: God on Earth', which came into being in collaboration with the Anchoring Innovation research program, is on view at the Rijksmuseum van Oudheden in Leiden.
The exhibition focuses on Domitian's life, his imperial reign, his wife and his predecessors and features a selection of masterpieces from the first century AD, the so-called Golden Age of the Roman Empire.

In connection with this exhibition, the curators have published a book that includes the latest research on Domitian and his reign.
