GALLIENVS

Reigned: 253-268 A.D.

PVBLIVS LICINIVS EGNATIVS GALLIENVS, born about 218, was the son of Egnatia Mariniana and the future Emperor Valerian I. He married Cornelia Salonina about 242. He became co-Augustus with his father in 253 upon the death of Aemilian. Valerian was captured by the Sassanians in 260, leaving Gallienus as sole Emperor. His reign was one of unparalleled chaos caused by barbarian incursions and usurpers. The eastern and western parts of the Empire seceded during his reign, only to be restored by Aurelian in his. Gallienus was killed by his own men while besieging a usurper at Milan in March, 268.(Excerpt from MONETA, from www.numus.com)
