Philip I 244-249 AD. Ancient Roman Silver Coin. This coin is a great find and highly sought after! It is a must have for every collection. Imperial – Philip I – Emperor Riding Antoninianus. Obv: IMP M IVL PHILIPPVS AVG legend with radiate, draped bust right. Rev: ADVENTVS AVGG legend with Philip on horseback left, holding sceptre and raising right hand. RIC 26b; RSC 3; Sear 8916. Philip’s rise to prominence began through the intervention of his brother Priscus, who was an important official under the emperor. His big break came in 243, during Gordian III’s campaign against. Of Persia, when the. Died under unclear circumstances. At the suggestion of his brother Priscus, Philip became the new Praetorian prefect, with the intention that the two brothers would control the young Emperor and rule the Roman world as unofficial regents. Following a military defeat, Gordian III died in 244 under circumstances that are still debated. While some claim that Philip conspired in his murder, other accounts (including one coming from the Persian point of view) state that Gordian died in battle. Whatever the case, Philip assumed the purple robe following Gordian’s death. His rise from so obscure a station to the first dignities of the empire seems to prove that he was a bold and able leader. But his boldness prompted him to aspire to the throne, and his abilities were employed to supplant, not to serve, his indulgent master. Philip was not willing to repeat the mistakes of previous claimants, and was aware that he had to return to Rome. In order to secure his position with the senate. However, his first priority was to conclude a peace treaty with Shapur I of Persia, and withdraw the army from a potentially disastrous situation. Although Philip was accused of abandoning territory, the actual terms of the peace were not as humiliating as they could have been. Philip apparently retained Timesitheus reconquest of Osroene. But he had to agree that Armenia. Lay within Persias sphere of influence. He also had to pay an enormous indemnity to the Persians of 500,000 gold denarii. Philip immediately issued coins proclaiming that he had made peace with the Persians (pax fundata cum Persis). Leading his army back up the Euphrates. Philip erected a cenotaph. In honor of Gordian III, but his ashes were sent ahead to Rome. Where he arranged for Gordian IIIs deification. He left his brother Priscus as extraordinary ruler of the Eastern provinces, with the title of rector Orientis. Moving westward, he gave his brother-in-law Severianus control of the provinces of Moesia. He eventually arrived in Rome in the late summer of 244, where he was confirmed Augustus. Before the end of the year, he nominated his young son Caesar. And heir, his wife, Otacilia Severa, was named Augusta, and he also deified his father Marinus, even though the latter had never been emperor. While in Rome, Philip also claimed an official victory over the Persians with the titles of Parthicus Adiabenicus , Persicus Maximus and Parthicus Maximus. International Buyers – Please Note.

FAUSTINA II Jr. 164AD VENUS grabs at MARS Lover Couple Ancient Roman Coin i42195

Item: i42195 Authentic Ancient Coin of. Faustina II – Roman Empress & Wife of Emperor Marcus Aurelius – 161-175 A. Bronze As 25mm (9.96 grams) Rome mint, under Marcus Aurelius, 164-169 A. Reference: RIC III 1680 (Aurelius); C 241 FAVSTINA AVGVSTA, Draped bust right. VENERI VICTRICI, Venus standing right, grabbing with both hands arms of Mars standing right, looking left, holding shield and parazonium. A few surviving statuary groups of this type featuring portraits of married aristocrats on the bodies of the Mars and Venus survive from the Antonine period and reflect both the popularity of the motif at the time and the desire of the well to do be portrayed in the guise of deities. This type of group is itself a combination two famous statue types: the 4th century BC Venus of Capua and the 5th century Ares Borghese types. Venus of Capua is statuary type representing a semi-naked Aphrodite. Its prototype, named after its findspot at the ruins of an ancient theater in Capua , Italy, is now in the Museo Archeologico Nazionale Napoli (Naples National Archaeological Museum). An earlier version of the type of the Venus de Milo , and close to the Venus of Arles , the statue probably represented the goddess admiring her reflection inside the reflective inner surface of Ares’ shield, a motif known on coins from Corinth. The Ares Borghese is a Roman marble statue of the imperial era (1st or 2nd century AD). It is 2.11m high. It is identifiable as Ares by the helmet and by the ankle ring given him by his lover Aphrodite. This statue possibly preserves some features of an original work in bronze, now lost, of the 5th century BC. The cult and representation of Ares are very rare in the ancient Greek world, especially in sculpture. It has been thought that this statue may be derived from one by Alcamenes , an Athenian sculptor who, according to Pausanias (I, 8, 4), made a statue of Ares that was erected on the Athenian agora. However, the temple of Ares to which he refers had only been moved from Acharnes and re-sited in the Agora in Augustus’s time, making this a chronological impossibility. Also, statues known to derive from Alcamenes’ statue show the god in a breastplate (one is depicted in this relief). So, in all, this statue may not be a copy of Alcamenes’s, but instead a Roman creation according to a classicising or Neo-Attic type. Later, widely dispersed, this type was paired with female statues of the Venus de Milo type for portraits of the imperial Roman couple, symbol of the union between military and peace, such as the Mars and Venus. Formerly part of the Borghese collection. Faustina the Younger or Faustina Minor , the younger Latin for Minor Annia Galeria Faustina Minor. Between 125 and 130-175 was a daughter of Roman Emperor Antoninus Pius and Roman Empress Faustina the Elder. She was a Roman Empress and wife to her maternal cousin Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius. Though Roman sources give a generally negative view of her character, she was held in high esteem by soldiers and her own husband and was given divine honours after her death.
