Philip II Philoromaeus King of the Seleucid Empire from 65 BC to 63 BC.
Philip II Philoromaeus was the son of the Seleucid king Philip I Philadelphus, and briefly ruled the renains of the Seleucid Empire after the death of his second cousin Antiochus XIII Asiaticus.

No coins of Philip II are known, which is unusual for Seleucid rulers. Seleucus V Philometor is the only other king for whom this is the case. This may indicate that Philip did not rule in any of the mint cities.

Philip may have survived his deposition: a Seleucid prince Philip is mentioned as a prospective bridegroom to queen Berenice IV of Egypt, sister of Cleopatra VII in 56 BC. The union was, however, checked by the Roman governor of Syria Aulus Gabinius who probably had Philip II killed.

Philip himself was indeed an insignificant pawn, but with him ended eleven generations of Seleucid kings, arguably some of the most influential rulers of the Hellenistic world.
