Gaius Vibius Trebonianus Gallus
Augustus (AD 251-253)  |  De Imperatoribus Romanis entry

Although he was suspected of luring his emperor Decius into a trap with the Goths, Gallus succeeded and appointed Decius' surviving son his co-Emperor, over his own son Volusian. Gallus was challenged by the successful governor of Dacia, Aemilian and fell in battle at Interamna.
