Member of the Third Century Emperors dynasty.

Coins for this issuer were issued from 276 until 276.

Marcus Annius Florius succeeded Tacitus as emperor. He had been commander of the Praetorian Guard and was quickly recognized by the senate.

Florian quickly marched east to continue fighting the Heruli, and soon had them nearly defeated. However, the eastern commander Marcus Aurelius Probus was declared emperor by Egypt, Syria, and the other eastern provinces. Florian marched south to encounter Probus but his much-larger army was soon decimated by heat and disease. His soldiers lost their loyalty, and Probus’ men talked them into deposing Florian in favour of Probus. Florian was killed by his own troops, who erected a statue in his honour.
