Philip I, 244-249 AD.
Av.: Laureate, draped and cuirassed bust of Philip to r.
Rv.: Bird´s-eye view of the tempel of Jupiter Heliopolitanus at Baalbek.
BoC: 18/1, 1993, p.32.
FAKE – A much counterfeited coin type. Here the obverse legend stands for Philip I while the portrait is clearly that of Caracalla. The coin is struck with a thin brown oxide coating and an artificial green patina which in turn is partly covered by earth.
