Upon his acclimation, Postumus was recognized as emperor in Gaul (except perhaps for Narbonensis), the two Germanias, and Raetia. By 261, Britannia, Gallia Narbonensis and Hispania had also acknowledged him as emperor, possibly after an expedition to Britain in the winter of 260/261. He established his capital in northern Gaul, probably at Colonia Claudia Ara Agrippinensium or Augusta Treverorum, and then proceeded to set up many of the traditional Roman legislative and executive structures. Apart from the position of emperor, he immediately assumed the office of consul alongside a colleague, Honoratianus. Like his imperial predecessors, he became the pontifex maximus of the state and assumed tribunician power each year. He is thought to have established a senate, perhaps on the basis of the Council of the Three Gauls or provincial councils, and a praetorian guard, one of whose officers was to become the future Gallic emperor Victorinus. Reflecting his power base, the chief members of Postumusí administration appeared to have been of northern Gallic origin, and indeed, the entire administration soon became rapidly Gallicized. Both Victorinus and Tetricus, important members of the government, hailed from this region.

How To Bid

1. Register for a Forum Ancient Coins account - if you haven't already.
2. Login to your account - if you haven't already.
3. Learn about the seller - Read feedback and ratings left by others to assure that the seller is trustworthy.  Forum bans sellers that have customer complaints, but it is still a good idea to check the seller's feedback.
4. Know the details - read the item description, seller terms, and shipping charges closely.  Sellers are required to accept PayPal (and you should only pay with PayPal), to guarantee delivery, and to guarantee authenticity without a time limit.  Read the sellers listing for other terms and return policies.
5. If you have questions - contact the seller FORVM AUCTIONS before you bid (click on the seller's username to send a message to the seller).
6. Place your bid!  Bid the maximum amount you want to pay for the item.  Your bid is an automated proxy bid and the amount will always be kept secret.  The program will automatically bid for you, the lowest possible amount (one increment above the next highest bid), and only up to your maximum.  If other bids are placed before the auction closes, the system will automatically bid for you again, but again only the minimum amount needed, and only up to your maximum.  If someone else bids more than your maximum, you will not be the high bidder; to win, you will need to place a higher bid before the auction closes.  If you are the high bidder at the end of the auction, you are the winner.  As the winner of the auction, you only pay the lowest possible winning bid, which may be less than your maximum bid.
