Quietus, fall or winter 260 - late 261 A.D.

Titus Fulvius Junius Quietus was the son of Titus Fulvius Macrianus Senior, the commander of Valerian's legions in the East. After the Sasanian king Shapur I captured Valerian, Macrianus Senior had his two sons Macrianus Junior and Quietus declared emperor. The new rulers drove the Persians out of Antioch. Domitianus, who served under Gallienus, defeated the legions led by Quietus' father and brother. Eight months later, Quietus was murdered by the populace of Emesa to avoid siege by Gallienus' vice-regent in Asia, Odaenathus (actually his wife Zenobia was the real power). Nearly all coins of Quietus are rough due to the billon alloy used.

Apollo is one of the most important and complex of the Olympian deities in ancient Greek and Roman religion and Greek and Roman mythology. The ideal of the kouros (a beardless, athletic youth), Apollo has been variously recognized as a god of light and the sun, truth and prophecy, healing, plague, music, poetry, and more. Apollo is the son of Zeus and Leto, and has a twin sister, the chaste huntress Artemis. This coin is dedicated to Apollo the Protector.

Jupiter or Jove, Zeus to the Greeks, was the king of the gods and god of the sky and thunder, and of laws and social order. As the patron deity of ancient Rome, he was the chief god of the Capitoline Triad, with his sister and wife Juno. The father of Mars, he is, therefore, the grandfather of Romulus and Remus, the legendary founders of Rome. Emperors frequently made vows to Jupiter for protection. The Roman's believed as the king of the gods, Jupiter favored emperors and kings, those in positions of authority similar to his own.
