Roman Imperial, Trebonianus Gallus, Antoninianus

Roman Imperial

Trebonianus Gallus (251-253), Antoninianus 251-253, Antioch mint

Obverse: radiate, draped and cuirassed bust right

IMP C C VIB TREB GALLVS P FAVG

Reverse: Aequitas, standing left, holding scales and cornucopiae, • in exergue

VBERITAS AVG

Diameter 22 mm, weight 4.06 g

Trebonian Gallus was proclaimed emperor by the army when his predecessor Trajan Decius, along with his older son, Herennius Etruscan, died in the Battle of the Goths at Abrittus in late 251. The election was quickly accepted by the Senate, elevating the younger son of Decius Hostilian to Augustus. Hostilian was soon killed by the plague, and the Trebonians with their son Volusian, co-ruler raised to the rank of Augustus after Hostilian's death, ruled only until August 253, when they were killed by their own soldiers. The proclamation on the reverse of 'universal happiness' is here only wishful propaganda - in fact the situation of the Roman Empire, threatened by the Germans from the north and the Sassanids from the east, was extremely difficult.

VBERITAS AVG

Średnica 22 mm, waga 4.06 g

Trebonian Gallus został obwołany cesarzem przez armię, gdy jego poprzednik Trajan Decjusz wraz ze starszym synem, Herenniuszem Etruskusem, zginął w bitwie z Gotami pod Abrittus pod koniec 251 r. Wybór szybko zaakceptował senat, podnosząc jednocześni do rangi augusta młodszego syna Decjusza - Hostyliana. Hostylian wkrótce zginął wskutek zarazy, zaś Trebonian ze swym synem Woluzjanem, współpanującym podniesionym po śmierci Hostyliana do rangi augusta, panowali raptem do sierpnia 253, gdy zostali zabici przez własnych żołnierzy. Głoszenie na rewersie 'powszechnej szczęśliwości' jest tu jedynie życzeniową propagandą - w rzeczywistości sytuacja Imperium Romanum, zagrożonego przez Germanów od północy i Sasanidów od wschodu, była niezmiernie trudna.
