Historical background


(249) Tiberius Claudius Marinus Pacatianus

Pacatian was at the head of the Danubian legions at the end of the year 348 or at the beginning of the year 349 when he was proclaimed august by his troops, revolted against the authority of Philip the Arab. This revolt occurred at about the same time as that against Jotapien in the East. Philip sent his general Decius to fight the sedition. The mutinous legions eliminated the Pacatian and rallied to Decius, who at first refused the purple before finally accepting it and marching against Philip and his son. The final meeting took place near Verona in September 249.
