Roman, PHILIP I
Philip I. A.D. 244-249. AR double denarius (22 mm, 3.47 g, 6 h). Rome, A.D. 245. Radiate, draped and cuirassed bust of Philip I right / Liberalitas standing left, holding abacus and cornucopiae. RIC 38b; RSC 87

I believe that this coin has one of the best, if not the best, obverse portraits of Philip I on an antoninianus that I have ever seen.
