Titus Fulvius Junius Quietus was the younger brother of the usurper Macrianus and son of General Fulvius Macrianus. Quietus was left in charge of the Eastern provinces during his father and brother’s attempt to overthrow Gallienus after his father’s death; Valerian I. Quietus’ father and brother were defeated by Gallienus’ general, Aureolus, in Illyricum. Following their deaths, Quietus took refuge in the city of Emesa, where he came under attack by Odenathus, king of Palmyra. The Palmyran king defeated Quietus, captured and executed him, while some accounts report that he was killed by the citizens of the city.
