T. Flavius Vespasianus
Emperor 69-79
Vespasian [b. 9] commanded a legion during the invasion of Britain in 43, was Consul in 51, then proconsul of Africa. In 67 he was assigned to suppress the Judaean revolt.  After Galba's death, Vespasian was acclaimed by his troops and the garrisons of Syria and Egypt.  Vitellius was defeated at the second battle of Bedriacum and executed. Vespasian then returned to Rome and soon restored order. The Empire prospered under his reign, distinguished by economy, good administration and reliance on the power of the army. He was  deified after his death in 79.
