Tetrĭcus, C. Pesuvius

One of the Thirty Tyrants, and the last of the pretenders who ruled Gaul during its separation from the Empire under Gallienus and his successor, A.D. 267-274. He was defeated by Aurelian at the battle of Châlons (274 A.D.), and was treated by his conqueror with so much consideration as to give rise to the report that he had himself connived at the result (Eutrop. ix. 9; Trebell. Poll. Tr. Tyr. 23).
