Marcus Opellius Antoninus Diadumenianus or Diadumenian was the son of Roman Emperor Macrinus, who served his father briefly as Caesar from May, 217 to 218, and as Augustus in 218. He had little time to enjoy his position or to learn anything from its opportunities because the legions of Syria revolted and declared Elagabalus ruler of the Roman Empire. When Macrinus was defeated on June 8, 218, at Antioch, Diadumenian followed his father's death at the end of June.
This coin was found near a little village on plough-land where probably missed a fugitive citizen who fed up with the succession Sarmatian attacks.

In July 219, Julia Maesa had arranged for Julia Cornelia Paula (the daughter of Paulus, praetorian prefect) to marry her grandson, Rome's new emperor Elagabalus. Their wedding ceremony was a lavish ceremony that occurred in Rome. In September 220, Elagabalus ended his marriage to Paula and after the divorce, Elagabalus removed Paula's Augusta title. She withdrew from public life and her fate afterwards is unknown.

Very rare

Iulia Aquilia Severa was the second and fourth wife of Emperor Elagabalus. She was a Vestal Virgin and her marriage to Elagabalus in 220 was the cause of enormous controversy - traditionally, the punishment for breaking the thirty-year vow of celibacy was death. Elagabalus is believed to have had religious reasons for marrying Severa - he himself was a follower of the eastern sun god El-Gabal, and when marrying himself to Severa, he also conducted a symbolic marriage of his god to Vesta.

It's interesting her hair style is different than the other coin, but in RIC not select according to different hair styles. Perhaps these very rare coins are too expensive and usually most of collector has only one...

Note: This coin was struck in the 7th workshop which opened in 280 A.D. and was operated by an engraver who came from Serdica. The style of the emperor's portrait and the lettering is clearly that of Serdica. The mint at Serdica temporarily closed in 280 A.D. and its scalptores went to open the 7th workshop at Siscia and the 9th workshop at Antioch - see S. Estiot, L’Empereur et l’usurpateur: un 4e atelier oriental sous Probus"; 2015, p. 264-265.

The scarcity of this coin may owe in some part to the late date of its being struck – January-March 222 AD, in the very brief period just preceding his assassination, along with his mother and the purge of his followers – his ‘creatures’ (to note Gibbons’ term).
So being, that these coins were not held from release & circulation at the mints, to be melted down to strike new coinage for his successor, his cousin Severus Alexander.

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)

The VERITAS legend is probably blundered (missing ’B’), no other Empress used this, and the personification is as same as Uberitas coins. See also Trajan Decius VERITAS coin.

Very rare
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.

The coins of this type were minted between 231 and 235 AD, during the reign of Severus Alexander, who ruled from 222-235 AD. Alexander ruled the empire wisely and well, but was strongly influenced by his mother, Julia Mamaea. This was greatly resented by the army, and along with their perception of Alexander as unwarlike, caused the troops under Maximinus to rise against him, assassinating both Alexander and his mother in their camp near Mainz, Germany in 235 AD.

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)
