    From the Morris Collection.

    Regalianus and his wife Dryantilla rose to power at a time when the Empire was in complete chaos. The Persian king Shapur had captured Valerian I in the summer of 260. In this power vacuum, a number of rebellions broke out. In Gaul, the general Postumus aspired to rule the empire and in Antioch, Macrianus and Quietus sought more power. For a short time in 260, Regalianus struck coins in his own name and in the name of his wife Sulpicia Dryantilla. Virtually nothing is known of her except that she was the daughter of Claudia Ammiana Dryantilla and Sulpicius Pollio, a senator and officer in Caracalla's administration.
