I have what appears to be a sestertius of Philip (weight 17.0 grams, diameter 28 millimeters), but I cannot find a matching inscription in the literature.

Coin forum, can you work your magic identification skills?


This side, as you can see, is almost corroded away but it appears to be a standing figure and it looks like the letters P M S C on the left.



This side has a legend I can partially read. A ? indicates that there is a letter but I cannot read it.
