Gibbon, Chapter XI

  • A chapter full of thrilling incident. The catastrophic Gallienus is replaced by Claudius II, and he in turn very quickly by Aurelian, who conducts a series of successful military campaigns – against the Goths, reconquering Gaul and then also defeating the fascinating Zenobia of Palmyra – before being in turn assassinated.
