Tetricus II                       c.273 - 274 A.D.


Son of Tetricus. He shared in the pardon of his father and is said to have been given the position of Senator in which he served with distinction. He may also have been promoted to the rank of co-Augustus shortly before the two capitulated to Aurelian. The evidence rests on a coin or two bearing his face (distinguished by the lack of beard as opposed to his Dad) bearing a legend ending AVG.


AE Antoninianus ca. 273--274 A.D.
