Licinius Valerianus (brother of Gallienus)

Licinius Valerianus Minor (died 268) was the son of Roman emperor Valerian and his second wife Cornelia Gallonia, and half-brother of Gallienus.

LifeEdit

In a nundinium sometime between 253 and 264 he was made suffect consul, and was appointed ordinary consul in 265.[1] He died in the wake of his brother's assassination in the autumn of 268 as his paternal nephew Publius Licinius Egnatius Marinianus, in a purge against Gallienus' partisans; Joannes Zonaras reported that he was killed at Rome, whereas Eutropius and the Historia Augusta state that he was murdered at Mediolanum.[2]
