Member of the The Gallic Emperors dynasty.

Coins for this issuer were issued from 272 until 274.

Gaius Pius Esuvius Tetricus (who had the same name as his father) probably received the title Caesar in 273 from his father. He may have been promoted to Augustus near the end of his father’s reign, but the evidence is inconclusive. When Aurelian re-integrated the Gallic Empire back into the Roman, Tetricus II lived out his days in Rome.

In 273, he was raised to the rank of Caesar, with the title of princeps iuventutis, and in January 274 he started his first consulship, together with his father. After the defeat and deposition of his father in the autumn of 274, he appeared as a prisoner in Aurelian's triumph, but the emperor spared their lives. According to some sources, he had also kept his senatorial rank.
