Or formerly (prior to World War II) in English as Philip the Arabian , was a Roman Emperor. From 244 to 249. Little is known about Philip’s early life and political career. He was born in Shahba. About 55 miles southeast of Damascus. In the Roman province. Philip has the nickname “the Arab” because he had family who had originated in the Arabian peninsula. Believed to be distant descendants of the prestigious Baleed family of Aleppo. Philip was the son of a Julius Marinus, a local Roman citizen, possibly of some importance. Many historians agree that he was of Arab descent who gained Roman citizenship. Through his father, a man of considerable influence. Many citizens from the provinces took Roman names upon acquiring citizenship. This makes tracing his Arabic blood line difficult. However, it is documented that Rome used the Ghassan. Tribe from the Azd. As vassals to keep the neighboring northern Arabs in check. The name of Philip’s mother is unknown, but sources refer to a brother, Gaius Julius Priscus. A member of the Praetorian guard. In 234, Philip married Marcia Otacilia Severa. Daughter of a Roman Governor. They had two children: a son named Marcus Julius Philippus Severus Philippus II.

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 following Gordian’s death. According to Edward Gibbon. 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. He thus travelled west, after concluding a peace treaty with Shapur I, and left his brother Priscus as extraordinary ruler of the Eastern provinces. In Rome he was confirmed Augustus. And nominated his young son Caesar. Philip’s rule started with yet another Germanic. Incursion on the provinces of Pannonia. They were finally defeated in the year 248, but the legions.

The uprising was crushed and Philip nominated Gaius Messius Quintus Decius. As governor of the province. Future events would prove this to be a mistake. Pacatianus’ revolt was not the only threat to his rule: in the East, Marcus Jotapianus. Led another uprising in response to the oppressive rule of Priscus. And the excessive taxation of the Eastern provinces. Two other usurpers, Marcus Silbannacus.

In 753 BC by Romulus. He combined the anniversary with the celebration of Rome’s alleged tenth saeculum. According to contemporary accounts, the festivities were magnificent and included spectacular games, ludi saeculares. And theatrical presentations throughout the city. In the coliseum, more than 1,000 gladiators were killed along with hundreds of exotic animals including hippos, leopards, lions, giraffes, and one rhinoceros.

Philip’s army met the usurper near modern Verona. Decius won the battle and Philip was killed sometime in September 249, either in the fighting or assassinated by his own soldiers who were eager to please the new ruler.
