Albīnus, Clodius

A governor of Britain at the death of the emperor Commodus (q.v.) in A.D. 192. In order to secure his neutrality, Septimius Severus made him Caesar; but, after Severus had defeated his rivals, he turned his arms against Albinus. A great battle was fought between them at Lugdunum (Lyons), in Gaul, A.D. 197, in which Albinus was defeated and killed.
