Hi
I put this portrait of prince child because I look it work of excellent engraver.   
Is it  mannerist portrait   of the 3° century ?  or not ? 
Your opinions are pleasant.
Thank

M IVL PHILIPPVS CAES
PRINCIPI IVVENT
RIC IV (Part 3), Rome 255a

That is a nice a more realistic portrait of the young man!

I would not call this picture 'manneristic' as that word suggests that a certain non-realistic aspect was intently added to the picture, as that was the fashion then. This lovely portrait should be seen in the very long Greco-Roman tradition of sculpture and, indeed, would be pinned down by experts to belong to the third century.
If I were to meet prince Philippus tomorrow, I would at once recognize him from this portrait, which would be extremely difficult in the case of Galerius or Maximinus, as their portraits WERE done in a manneristic way!

Treasure your coin!
