Seller's Note/ Laelianus is just a small footnote in history and very little is known concerning him. A general, he won a battle against the German's, was acclaimed Augustus by his troops, and struck a few coins. When Postumus closed in with his armies he was murdered by his on troops. His ill-advised reign lasted less than a month.
