I'm not sure you can really use the inscriptions cited on (http://www.roman-emperors.org/probus.htm#N_17_) to demonstrate the extent of the revolts, since the erasure could have occurred after Carus' usurpation, which I think is more probable. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 13:44, 8 April 2010 (UTC)
Why isn't he named Marcus Aurelius Probus Gothicus if he was awarded the title after defeating the Goths?

There is some evidence, chiefly from coins, that Probus may have not been born at Sirmium but at Siscia instead. HA alleges "Probus oriundus e Pannonia, civitate Sirmiensi" but that is the only source for Sirmium as birthplace. Coins maybe suggesting an alternative -> SISCIA PROBI AVG (RIC 764-766) and ORIGINI AVG (Origins of the Emperor) (RIC 701-703). The latter especially suggests Siscia, as ORIGINI is an unique type struck only at that mint city, and exclusively for Probus.

Probus should also include the Abbot serving under Pope Gregory (c. 600) that established medical assistance in Jerusalem for the "Christian" pilgrims that traveled there. Stevenmitchell 00:56, 14 May 2006 (UTC)
The above comment should go under http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Probus_%28disambiguation%29
It might be worth looking at the following external link: http://www.roman-empire.net/decline/probus.html since it has quite a lot more detail than this article does.
