Murphysboro Centuries, 3rd secular

Philip the Arabian, 244-249 AD
- made a treaty with Persia, fought against the Germans along the Danube and the Rhine - became disheartened and uncertain over military problems, defeated and killed by a rebellious general
- during his reign Rome celebrated its 1000th birthday (753BC-247AD) - big celebrations, lavish games - was so tolerant of Christianity that some have called him the first Christian emperor
