Palmyrene-Roman Empire, Aurelian and Vabalathus, c. Nov 270 - Mar 272 A.D.
|Vabalathus|, |Palmyrene-Roman| |Empire,| |Aurelian| |and| |Vabalathus,| |c.| |Nov| |270| |-| |Mar| |272| |A.D.|, Initially, Aurelian recognized Vaballathus' rule, likely because he was engaged in conflict with the Gallic Empire in the west and hesitated to incite open warfare with the Palmyrene Empire. This mutual recognition is verified by coins issued by Zenobia under Vaballathus's name, which also acknowledged Aurelian as emperor. Aurelian is depicted wearing a radiate crown that signifies his supremacy, and Vaballathus is crowned with a laurel wreath and the Hellenistic royal diadem. The abbreviated titles of Vabalathus most likely were, Vir Clarissimus Romanorum (or Rex) Imperator Dux Romanorum.
