A Historical Timeline of the Bible

Table 10b - The Gallic Empire Follows the Death of Valerian 

Postumus starts rebel empire in Gaul as Gallienus is unable to stop the insurrection. 

Finally, in early A.D. 274 emperor Aurelian, having defeated the Palmyrene empire in the east, now sought to reunite all the empire and marched against the Gallic empire. In a close battle on the Campi Catalaunii (Châlons-sur-Marne) Aurelian gained victory and restored the territories back to his empire. Tetricus and his son surrendered.
