Florian was the half-brother of Tacitus who became ever-so-briefly
the sole Senate-ratified emperor. While Tacitus was still alive, he sent Florian
with a large army off to confront Probus, self-proclaimed emperor. Probus
outsmarted Florian on the battlefield and emerged triumphant. Together with
Florian's former army, Probus then resumed his march towards Rome.
