Probus.jpg (2599 bytes)
M. Aurelius Probus
Emperor 276-282

Probus [b.232] was a leading general in the Eastern army. Soon after the death of Tacitus, he was acclaimed and spent most of his reign repelling foreign invasions and a succession of usurpers. He gave the empire excellent government, and did much to restore its battered economy. This led indirectly to his downfall, when soldiers unhappy with being employed on public works projects mutinied and assassinated him in the autumn of 282.

Usurpers:  Bonosus, Saturninus
