Reign c. 250 (against Decius)
Full name Iulius Valens Licinianus
Died c. 250

Iulius Valens Licinianus was a Roman usurper in 250.

Apparently, Licinianus, who was a senator, had the support of the Roman Senate and parts of the population when he initiated an uprising against Decius, who was fighting the Goths. However, Valerian, who had been left in charge in Rome by Decius, had little trouble in suppressing the rebellion.
