History: Early in 244, the Roman and Sassanian armies met again near the city of Misiche (modern Fallujah, Iraq). Shapur's forces were triumphant, and the city was renamed Peroz-Shapur, "Victorious [is] Shapur." Shapur commemorated his victory with a sculpture and trilingual inscription (at Naqsh-i-Rustam in modern-day Iran) that claimed that Gordian III was killed in the battle. Roman sources do not mention this battle and suggest that Gordian died far away, upstream of the Euphrates. On 25 February AD 244 near Zaitha (Qalat es Salihiyah) the soldiers elected Philip emperor. Although ancient sources often described Philip, as having murdered Gordian at Zaitha, the cause of Gordian's death is unknown (11 February 244).

History: In AD 240 the Persians under Shapur I invaded Mesopotamia. Gordian, the young emperor opened the doors of the Temple of Janus for the last time in Roman history, and sent a huge army to the East. This coin probably commemorate the victory in the Battle of Resaena or Resaina (today Ras al-Ayn, Syria) in AD 243, when the Roman army -led by Praetorian Prefect Timesitheus- defeated the Sassanid Empire army, led by King Shapur I.

History: Under the reign of Gordian III not only the East frontier was in danger but the Danubian limes also, because of the German and Goth tribes. This was the first time, when Aurelian appeared, as a cavalry commander. 'Aurelian and three hundred men of his garrison alone destroyed the Sarmatians when they burst into Illyricum. Theoclius, who wrote of the reigns of the Caesars (?), relate that in the war against the Sarmatians Aurelian with his own hand slew forty-eight men in a single day and that in the course of several days he slew over nine hundred and fifty.' (Historia Augusta: The Life of Aurelian, Part 1, 6)

Obverse bust below IIV or VII (it’s difficult to say exactly, because seen only four line) but I think rather IIV. It’s also interesting: initial of the legend is same as Hostilian ’Caesar’ coins: C.OVL.OSTIL… instead of C.OVAL.OSTIL…-by RIC (missing the ’A’), so this coin not in RIC.
Caius Valens Hostilianus Messius Quintus was the younger son of Trajan Decius and brother of Herennius Etruscus. In June 251 raised him to the rank of Augustus by Senate, because of his father and brother died. Shortly afterwards he died of plague in the end of July 251 (or a month later). The other alternative he was murdered by the order of Trebonianus Gallus.

In April 248, Philip had the honour of leading the celebrations of the one thousandth birthday of Rome, which according to tradition was founded in 753 BC by Romulus. He combined the anniversary with the celebration of Rome's alleged tenth saeculum. According to contemporary accounts, the festivities were magnificent and included spectacular games, ludi saeculares, and theatrical presentations throughout the city. In the coliseum, more than 1,000 gladiators were killed along with hundreds of exotic animals including hippos, leopards, lions, giraffes, and one rhinoceros.

Secular Games Issue.

From CNG: Continuing the tradition of Claudius and Antoninus Pius before him, the celebration of the Secular Games at the end of every century since the founding of Rome culminated during the reign of Philip I, as the city celebrated her 1,000th anniversary in AD 248. The legends on these issues almost exclusively read SAECVLARES AVGG, and feature a similar iconography from previous games, such as the she-wolf suckling the twins, the various wild beasts paraded through the amphitheater, and a cippus inscribed for the preservation of the memory of these events.

From Wikipedia: The Saecular Games (Latin: Ludi saeculares, originally Ludi Terentini) was a Roman religious celebration involving sacrifices and theatrical performances, held in ancient Rome for three days and nights to mark the end of a saeculum and the beginning of the next. A saeculum, supposedly the longest possible length of human life, was considered as either 100 or 110 years in length.

According to Roman mythology, the Secular Games began when a Sabine man called Valesius prayed for a cure for his children's illness and was supernaturally instructed to sacrifice on the Campus Martius to Dis Pater and Proserpina, deities of the underworld. Some ancient authors traced official celebrations of the Games as far back as 509 BC, but the only clearly attested celebrations under the Roman Republic took place in 249 and in the 140s BC. They involved sacrifices to the underworld gods over three consecutive nights.

The Games were revived in 17 BC by Rome's first emperor Augustus, with the nocturnal sacrifices on the Campus Martius now transferred to the Moerae (fates), the Ilythiae (goddesses of childbirth), and Terra Mater ("Mother Earth"). The Games of 17 BC also introduced day-time sacrifices to Roman deities on the Capitoline and Palatine hills. Certain sacrifices were unusually specified to be performed by married women. Each sacrifice was followed by theatrical performances. Later emperors held celebrations in AD 88 and 204, after intervals of roughly 110 years. However, they were also held by Claudius in AD 47 to celebrate the 800th anniversary of Rome's foundation, which led to a second cycle of Games in 148 and 248. The Games were abandoned under later Christian emperors.

Apollo was as a god who could bring ill-health and deadly plague as well as one who had the ability to cure. As the plague continued to ravage the city of Rome in the Summer of 251, Gallus gained popular support within the city by providing proper burials for all plague victims, even those too poor to afford it. Almost every collector identifies this coin with the plague, but according to French sources this coin made 4th issue, 6th officina, so it struck maybe in the beginning of 253. Probably this coin is connect to Colonia Vibia Augusta Perusia (Perusia was the birth-town of Gallus and got the Colonia rank in the beginning 253 AD) where was a local Apollo cult.

”Only his ’Virtus Augg.’ strike a sterner note. It was perhaps felt that the government might otherwise appear too soft. The issue with a star covers only about one-third of the year. As a solar symbol the star had been used by the Emperor Elagabalus, the priest of Elagabalus the Sun-god. Here it may possibly refer to Apollo in his capacity of Sun-god. The exact occasion has not been determined.” (RIC IViii pp156-157)
