Fulvius Junius Quietus was the son of a general of Valerian fighting in Persia. Upon the Persians’ capture of Valerian, Quietus and his brother Macrianus were declared emperors, in an effort to rally support and stop the Persian advance. Quietus remained in charge of the eastern provinces while his father and brother set off to vanquish Gallienus. After their death, Quietus was besieged in Emesa by the Palmyran king Odenathus, by whom he was captured and killed.
