Description

Details

In the spring of A.D. 260, the Roman Emperor Valerian was taken prisoner by the Persian ”King of Kings.“ This humiliating capture, unprecedented in the long annals of Rome, ended Valerian’s reign, leaving his overmatched son Gallienus on the throne, and a power vacuum from Syria to Britain.
