Jenkins 9a, Cohen 2. RIC IV 2a var. (obv. legend); Bland, "The Coinage of Jotapian", Essays Carson & Jenkins, 9(a) (this coin); RSC 1a var. (same).
Only eighteen coins of Jotapian are cited by Bland, all of which are antoniniani. Jotapian led a short-lived revolt in Syria in the autumn of 249 while Philip I was still emperor. Little is known of Jotapian’s background. It was said that he boasted of a relationship to Alexander Severus, and his unusual name, although otherwise unknown for a man, is attested in its feminine form "Jotape" in the royal houses of Commagene and Emesa. The extreme rarity of his coins indicates that the revolt was brief, and the crude style proves that the revolt was geographically confined, for Jotapian clearly did not control a major Roman mint. Following his defeat, his head was brought to Rome and shown to Trajan Decius "as was customary, although Decius had not asked for it" (Aurelius Victor, Historiae Abbreviatae, 29.4).
