Philip II was the son of Emperor Philip I “the Arab” and his wife Otacilia Severa. He was seven years old when his father became emperor. In 247 A.D., he was elevated to Augustus along with his father. When Philip was killed in battle with Trajan Decius, Philip II distributed bonuses to the troops and money to the citizens of Rome to celebrate his accession to the throne as sole ruler. This generosity did him no good, however, because the Praetorian Guard killed Philip II sometime in the fall of 249. For some reason, many of the coins of Philip II are graced with beautiful portraits and exquisite artwork on the reverse. Though he was only a minor Caesar and emperor, his coins are highly sought because of their beauty, especially the provincial issues. The inherent splendor of the precious metals is allowed to shine in this pendant. The natural hues of the silver and the gold complement each other. In this pendant, the present and the past combine. The classic reserved form of the modern gold setting frames the timeless beauty and majesty of the ancient coin. To wear this pendant is to reconnect with the past while simultaneously exhibiting style and elegance that is both contemporary and timeless. - (FJ.7014)
