Lucillus was a relative of the Roman emperor, Gallienus, who was appointed consul posterior in AD 265 alongside Publius Licinius Valerianus.Nothing else is recorded about his career. It is assumed that he was one of the relatives of Gallienus murdered at Rome in AD 268, after the assassination of Gallienus.
It has been speculated that Lucillus was the son of Egnatius Lucillianus, the imperial legate in Britain under Gordian III. However, a familial relationship between the imperial members of the gens Egnatii and Egnatius Lucillianus has been described as “extremely doubtful”.
