Quintillus, M. Aurelius

The brother of the emperor M. Aurelius Claudius, who was elevated to the throne by the troops whom he commanded at Aquileia, in A.D. 270. But as the army at Sirmium, where Claudius died, had proclaimed Aurelian emperor, Quintillus put an end to his own life, seeing himself deserted by his own soldiers, to whom the rigour of his discipline had given offence (Eutrop. ix. 12; Zos.i. 47).
