Historical background


TACITUS

(11-12/275-06/276)

According to A. Chastagnol, the interregnum lasts nearly two months, between the end of September and the beginning of December 275 at most.

The date of his elevation poses a problem and the traditional date of September 25 may be called into question if the interregnum lasts until December.
