Marcus Julius Philippus Augustus (244-249)

I made this photograph some time ago for a website.  In the middle of the ancient roman coins, you see  Marcus Julius Philippus. The minting quality for such an old coin (~ 1764 years!) is amazing.

  1. Nice photo. The designs on some old Roman coins are really impressive for the time – some of them capture details that put medieval European coins to shame. They’re all interesting, though.

  2. Amazing coins especially when you consider the age. I wonder how the coins of today will compare hundreds of years from now.. Great photo. 🙂
