the wealthy descendant of a race of robber chiefs, was a native of Albium Ingaunum, in Liguria, Having entered upon the career of a soldier, he served with great distinction in the Roman legions, and frequently held the command of a tribune. In the year A. D. 280, he was persuaded by a bold ambitious wife to place himself at the head of the discontented inhabitants of Lyons, and to assume the purple. Duringthe brief period of his sway, he achieved a victory over the Alemanni ; but having been attacked and routed by Probus, he sought refuge among the Franks, by whom he was delivered up to death.
