Probus’s six-year reign is impressively long, given that Probus delivered Gaul from the ravages of the Germans, pursued them across the Rhine, and everywhere defeated them. His operating theory was that soldiers should never be idle, even in times of peace, and employed them in various useful works such as building roads and canals in Egypt, and planting vineyards in Gaul.
