Philip I celebrated the 1,000th anniversary of Rome with the Saecular Games, and for awhile the magnificent spectacles and athletic contests enabled Romans to forget the economic and military straits the Empire was experiencing. Exotic animals of all kinds, including the hippopotamus shown on the reverse of this scarce sestertius, were paraded through the streets before being slaughtered in the arena in staged “hunts.” A series of coins with the legend SAECVLARES AVGG commemorated the event.

Obverse side
Diademed, draped bust of Otacilia Severa right
