Gallic Empire, Laelianus, March or April - May 269 A.D.

Ulpius Cornelius Laelianus (his full name is known from an early coin) was probably governor of Germania Superior or commander of Legion XXII Primigenia. Believing Postumus would be occupied fighting Claudius Gothicus, he assumed the purple, establishing his capital and mint at Moguntiacum (Mainz, Germany). Laelianus was wrong; Postumus soon attacked and Laelianus perished.
