MARCVS IVLIVS PHILIPPVS was born near Damascus in about 204.  He married Marcia Otacilia Severa, and their son Philip II was born in 237.  Philip was Praetorian Praefect when Gordian III mysteriously died in 244 on the Sassanian campaign.  He was acclaimed Augustus, made a quick peace, and returned to Rome.  He ruled benevolently, engaged in a Danubian campaign, and celebrated the 1,000th anniversary of Rome in 248.  In 249 the commander in the Danubian region, Decius, was hailed as Augustus by his men.  Philip marched north, but was killed in the battle of Verona in August, 249.

Recent Changes

21 October 2013 - Another Deultum variation with Aesculapius.  Small difference from another specimen but listed seperately in SNG so I will show both here too.

24 October 2012 - One new provincial issue from Kallatis, Thrace.  It has the Cybele seated left reverse.

3 October 2012 - Two new Philip I issues from Deultum.  Both are Prow reverses but with legend breaks I did not have.

22 April 2012 - A new Philip I issue from Deultum, this one with Cybele on the reverse.

5 August 2011 - Two new Philip I / Otacilia obverses from Mesembria.  The first with an interessting Apollo and Lyre reverse and the seconf with Salus (Hygeia) feeding a snake from a patera.

If you have any suggestions or comments, please contact me at: ancientjim@ettuantiquities.com.

The attached 11 pages of Philip I provincial coins contain pictures and attributions for bronze coins minted during the reign of Philip I.  Attribution numbers are from a variety of sources.  I want to personally thank Philippe Vincent for his attribution assistance.  As a neophyte on provincials I need all of the help I can get.  Philippe has provided that help.
