Historical background



Florian, prefect of the praetorium of Tacitus, is certainly not his brother or half-brother because he does not wear the same gentile as him (Claudius/Annius). He cannot stay in power because Probus is acclaimed emperor. He is assassinated by his own soldiers in Tarsus. The coinage continues to be minted after his death, possibly until late September or early October.
