Historical background


(03-06/269) Ulpius Cornelius Laelianus

Thelink, probably governor of Lower Germany, revolted against Posthumus with the help of the XXX Legion stationed at Castra Vetera (Xanten). He took refuge in Cologne where Posthumus came to besiege. Thelink was defeated and killed. Posthumus, who refused the sack of the city in his victorious troops, was killed in turn.
