Description

Lucius Julius Aurelius Septimius Vabalathus Athenodorus was the son of the Palmyran king Odenathus and his wife Zenobia. Through the scheming of his gifted mother, Vabalathus was given the titles his father held, but which had been refused him by Gallienus. The abbreviated titles of Vabalathus found on his coinage most likely were, Vir Clarissimus Romanorum (or Rex) Imperator Dux Romanorum. In 271 A.D., Vabalathus was declared Augustus but Aurelian defeated his forces. Vabalathus and Zenobia were taken to Rome where they lived in great comfort.
