Historical background


CLAUDE II THE GOTHIC

Claudius II was appointed master of the cavalry after the defection of Aureolus and was part of the conspiracy that eliminated Gallien. Having promised to save life Aureolus after the death of Gallienus, he nevertheless left massacred by his troops after the surrender of Milan. Claudius II gained a brilliant victory over the Goths Naissus in upper Moesia. Unfortunately, defeated propagated the plague among the winners and Claude fell victim. He was deified after his death and a major counterfeiting restitution was struck by Aurelian in 270 first, then by Constantine I, who claimed descent from Claudius II, in the early fourth century.
