Pupienus, 22 April - 29 July 238 A.D.

Pupienus was elected along with Balbinus to end the reign of the brutal thug Maximinus. A military stalemate ensued, until Maximinus was murdered by his own troops. The joint emperors continuously quarreled. The general population and more importantly the Praetorian guard held little respect for the two ex-senators. Perhaps they would have been successful if they had worked together. Divided they were murdered after a reign of only 99 days.

RIC does not include this type; Cohen 43 was left out as doubtful. Curtis Clay informed us that Cohen 43 quotes Mionnet, who is probably relying on Vaillant. Vaillant in his 1682 ed. cites Dux Sabaudiae, the Royal coll. at Turin. The BMC specimen is a St. Urbain forgery, Pink, Num. Chron. 1933, pl. XX,.5
