    Both are nice, but you are right about the portrait of Philip

    Denarii of Philip are extremely rare. These coins are double denarii or antoniniani. Note the denomination is misspelled in the images. Antoninianus.

    Extremely sweet OP-scores, Andres (congrats)

    ... yah, as Doug implied, I don't have one of those rare Phil-Arab-denarius ...

    Philip I AR Antoninianus

    Nice coins, although I was a bit disappointed in first place, attracted I had been by the perspective of seeing actual denarii of both dudes :D
