Reverse: "ANNONA AVGG"
    ANNONA (Corn-harvest) standing front, head left, holding two corn-ears and cornucopia; at her feet, modius filled with corn-ears.

Note:  This is a very strange piece.  It combines an early obverse legend of the Antioch mint celebrating peace with Persia with the ANNONA  AVGG reverse only known to be minted at the Rome mint.

Reverse: "ANNONA AVGG"
    Aequitas (Equity, Fair dealing) standing left, holding scales and cornucopia.

Note:  This piece is not the "normal" mistake of combining an existing obverse die with the wrong reverse die creating what we call a "mule".  It is a unique reverse die with the legend of "ANNONA AVGG" with the figure of Aquitas holding scales and cornucopia.  This engraver was definitely having a bad day!!

Emperor's radiate, draped and cuirassed bust right. Obverse: "IMP PHILIPPVS AVG"
    Radiate, draped and cuirassed bust right.

Mint and Year: Rome - undated (AD 247)
Weight:      4.27 grams
Die axis:    185 degrees
Rarity:    unlisted

Reverse: "ANNONA AVGG"
    ANNONA (Corn-harvest) standing front, head left, holding two corn-ears and cornucopia; at her feet, modius filled with corn-ears.

Note:  None of the major references list this combination of the short obverse legend with the modius at her feet.  According to Mr. Clay, a respected expert on Philip coinage, this coin is what is known as a mule.  This reverse was discontinued in the spring of AD 247 while the short obverse legend began a couple of month's later.  It appears that the celator pulled out an old reverse die and used it for this strike.  A similar coin was discovered in the Eauze Hoard although from a different set of dies.

 This specimen is now in the Thibaut Marchal collection.
