Licinius Valerianus (also known as Valerianus Minor) (died 268 AD) was the son of the Roman Emperor Valerian, and brother to Gallienus. Sometime between 253 and 264 AD he was made suffect consul, and was appointed ordinary consul in 265 AD.[1] He died in the wake of his brother's assassination in 268; John Zonaras reported that he was killed at Rome, whereas Eutropius and the Historia Augusta state that he was murdered at Mediolanum.[2]
