Historical background


BALBINUS

(02-04/05/238)

After the eviction of the Gordians in Africa, the Senate appoints two of its members to fight against Maximin. The descent towards Italy is stopped in front of Aquilée, where it is assassinated in April 238. Balbin, great administrator, remains in Rome while Pupien takes the direction of the military affairs. Despite this efficient distribution of roles, Balbin does not manage to get along with his colleague Pupien. They are first forced to adopt the last male survivor of the Gordian family (Gordian the Younger), promoted to Caesar in February or March. Balbin and Pupien are both murdered, possibly in late April or early May. The new chronology is based on the work of A. Chastagnol and his introduction to the History of Augustus.
