  For a concise history of Gallus, born about 206, emperor from 251 to 253, see De Imperatoribus Romanis.

The larger-than-life statue of Trebonian the Gaul shown in the photos can be seen in the new Greco-Roman installation at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The sculpture, the only known full-body bronze from the 3rd century, was discovered near Rome's Church of San Giovanni in Laterano. The gold coin bearing his image is in the numismatic collection of the Palazzo Massimo.
