Here's a very nice 'LUDI SAECULARES' Sestertius issued for Otacilia Severa, Augusta (244-249 A.D). Draped bust right, wearing stephane. Issued under husband, Philip I ("The Arab"), for the Saecular Games in conjunction with 1000th Year of Rome. The events and celebration occurred in 248 A.D.
In my attempt to assemble a representative group of all the coins issued during the Saecular Games (Millennial), I had to acquire all of the animal coins issued under Philip I, his wife and son included. I looked at many versions of the Hippo reverse and this is one of the best and most representative of this scarce type. Many of the engravers had never seen a hippo and missed several features that made many versions confusing. One looked like a bear with claws on it's paws. Truth is there may actually be a bear reverse type that has yet to be described for the series.
OB: MARCIA OTACIL SEVERA AVG. ; Rx: SAECVLARES AVGG. Choice VF, 27 mm at 13.78 g. RIC 200a, Rome mint - 248 AD (752BC + 248AD = 1000).
