Philip I - Augustus of Imperium Romanum from 244 to 249
Marcus Iulius Philippus Augustus, also known commonly by his nickname Philip the Arab, was Roman Emperor from 244 to 249.

He was born in Arabia Petraea, in a city situated in modern-day Syria, and went on to become a major figure in the Roman Empire.

He achieved power after the death of Gordian III, and quickly negotiated a peace with the Sassanid Empire. During his reign, Rome celebrated its millennium.

Philip was overthrown and killed following a rebellion led by his successor Decius.
