Historical background


(09/260- spring 261) Titus Fulvius Junius Quietus


Quietus is the son and brother Macrian Macrian young. After the capture of Valerian by Shapur I (Sapor) Macrian, General Valerian I and Ballista, Prefect of the Praetorium, decided to save the East proclaiming the son of two Macrian, Macrian young Quietus, Augustus. Ballista defeated Sapor to Corcycus and forced the king to retreat on the Euphrates. After this victory, the two Macriens marched on the West, but they were defeated by Aureolus, Master Cavalry Gallien. Macrian and his father are taken prisoner and executed. In the East, Quietus, left alone and left to itself, became an easy prey to Odenath king of Palmyra.
