    I have not posted a new coin for a while, cause I did not have one. This is a Phillip I Arab from Cilicia. Tarsos, bronze. 31 mm. 244-249 AD.It is called a medallic type… please help me with that term and catalog number. Also reverse?

    I feel like the term medallion is applied to many large provincials with out much guidance. It seems like a standard circulation issue and not a special medal

    Big 3rd century provincial bronzes are great. Lots of interesting types even more so than sesterces and within 10 years of Philip's reign they disappeared...

    Thank you for that info. I was wondering why these large bronzes disappeared
