PVBLIVS LICINIUS VALERIANVS was born shortly after 190.� He was commanding troops along the Rhine when Trebonianus Gallus was killed during Aemilian's revolt in July, 253.� Valerian's troops hailed him Augustus and he quickly moved into Italy to confront Aemilian, who was then killed by his own men in September, 253.� Valerian and his son (and co-Augustus) Gallienus set out in 254 to restore the Empire's frontiers, Valerian taking the east and Gallienus the west.� After six years of warfare, Valerian was captured by treachery by the Sassanians in May, 260, and he died in captivity at an unknown date.
