Prieure de Sion Posted November 12, 2022 · Member Share Posted November 12, 2022 That’s not my coin - this coin is part of the Naville Numismatic Auction on Sunday 13.11.22 at biddr. https://www.biddr.com/auctions/navillenumismatics/browse?a=3041&l=3443378 When I looked through the overview of the auction I thought - oh an interesting Gordianus III from Antioch. Then I saw the description and thought - oh the auction house got Philip II wrong. But the legend on the front says it too - it really is a Philip II. This must be a fairly early mintage when there was no accurate information on the appearance of Philip in Antioch. So they just took Gordianus on the spot. There were enough stamps of Gordianus in Antioch. An interesting coinage. How does it look with you? Do you also have coins with portraits that are more visually reminiscent of the predecessor? 12 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
