Member of the The Gallic Emperors dynasty.

Coins for this issuer were issued from 269 until 269.

Laelian was governor of Upper Germany under Postumus and had two legions at his command. He led a rebellion at Mainz, but his supporters soon dwindled and Postumus recaptured Mainz. Laelian died sometime during the battle, though the exact details are not know. Postumus died shortly thereafter at the hands of his own soldiers, angry when he did not allow them to pillage the city.
