A silver Antoninianus from Philip II as Caesar under his father Emperor Philip I (247-249). This denomination is worth 2 Denarii. During the Crisis of the Third Century, rapid debasement and inflation racked the economy as the percentage of silver per coin slowly eroded away in each new emperor. This coin comes from the middle of the crisis as the Emperor and Caesar, father and son, would only reign for 2 years before being killed and replaced.
