Historical background


LAELIANUS

(03-06/269)

Lélien, probably governor of Lower Germania, revolts against Postumus with the help of the XXX legion stationed in Castra Vetera (Xanten). He took refuge in Cologne, where Postum came to besiege him. Lélien is defeated and assassinated. Postumus, having refused the sack of the city to his victorious troops, finds death in his turn.
