GOTHICUS - [Claudius II] This appellation (says Banduri) was fitly given to that Claudius who recovered Dacia to the empire, and conquered the Scythians and the Quadi, having first of all repelled from the Roman territory an irruption of Goths and Sarmatians, whose cupidity of plunder he punished by a signal slaughter, to the amount (according to historians) of three hundred and twenty thousand men. Hence we read on his coins IMP. CAESAR CLAVDIVS GER. GOTHICVS. - The same surname of Gothicus was assigned by the Senate to Probus, but it no where occurs on that emperor 's coins.
