Historical background



Consecration of Valerian and Gallienus

After his death, Valérien II was deified by Valérien I and Gallien. The following year, his younger brother Salonin was raised to the Cesarat. The coinage of Valerian II divus seems to stop in 259 or at the latest in 260 after the capture of Valerian I.
