Silbannacus – 249 AD

Spread the love


Ca 248AD

Marcus Silbannacus was a usurper during the reign of Philip I. History has not been kind to Silbannacus since it has failed to record his existence. Silbannacus is known only from a single coin which now resides in the British Museum. Silbannacus most likely led a very short lived rebellion around 248 AD on the Rhine perhaps about the same time period as Pacatian in the Balkins. He was most likely killed by his own troops since there is no record of a confrontation between himself and Philip I.
