|The Very Highest Quality Roman Portraits...|
Although Postumus had murdered Gallinus' son during the course of his usurpation, Gallienus made no more than a half-hearted attempt to wrest control of the west back from Postumus, and after a short-lived campaign, Gallienus retired back to Italy after receiving a wound from Postumus' soldiers. Thereafter, Postumus remained relatively unmolested by the Roman Empire, and his downfall in 268 came about at the hands of his own soldiers, when after capturing Mainz and putting the rebellious general Laelinus to death, he was murdered when he refused to allow his troops to loot the city. A fitting end perhaps, for a career soldier who had himself turned violently against his superiors.
The Gallic Empire survived its founder by another 8 years, when it was finally brought back into the Roman fold by Aurelian.
