From a European collection, acquired in Munich c. 2005 and found in Israel.

Julius Marinus was prominent citizen of a minor town in Arabia Petraea; the town's original name seems to be unknown, but it was the birthplace of the emperor Philip I and was, thus, refounded as Philippopolis after Philip came to the throne in 244. The use of the honorific title Θεω/Divus for Marinus is quite unusual since he was, himself, not officially a member of the imperial family. This was probably done to provide Philip with greater prestige, especially since he intended to turn his native town into a real city; the impressive ruins of Philippopolis, modern Shahba, still exist (none of the various factions in modern Syria have had the chance to blow it up).
