Trebonianus Gallus

January 20, 2010

Gaius Vibius Trebonianus Gallus, (born 205 A.D.), Roman Emperor, 251-53, said to have been treacherously concerned in the defeat and death of Decius, whom he succeeded. After his accession Gallus concluded a dishonourable peace with the Goths, conceding them a fixed annual tribute and allowing them to retain their captives and plunder. He was killed by his own soldiers when on the march to suppress the rebellion of Aemilianus.
