Historical background


AURÉLIEN and VABALLATH

(270-272)

Vaballath, son of Zenobia and Odenath, succeeded his assassinated father in 266 or 267. After a period of uncertainty where Palmyréens occupied Syria, Palestine and Egypt while seeming to recognize the authority of Rome (hence the antoninianii issue early in the reign of Aurelian), relations deteriorated quickly. Vaballath was proclaimed in august 272. Aurelian, after a short campaign, took Egypt and hired a final battle that ended with the destruction of Palmyra and capture Vaballath and Zenobia who participated in his Triumph in 274.
