Historical background




If Tétricus I became august on Victorin's death, Tétricus II did not become Caesar until around 273. The following year, Aurélien put an end to the Gallic Empire after the battle of Châlons-sur-Marne and seized the people of Tétricus and his son. They participate in the triumph of Aurelian in Rome at the end of 274. After which, they both survive and continue a senatorial career.
