Gallus

Gallus (Caius Vibius Trebonianus Gallus) (găl´əs), d. 253 or 254, Roman emperor after 251. He fought in the eastern campaign that proved fatal to Decius. Gallus became emperor and accepted Hostilianus, Decius' son, as his colleague, or nominal coruler. In Gallus' reign the Persians overran Mesopotamia, and the Goths invaded Moesia and Thrace. In 252 or 253 a new invasion was repelled in the Danube valley by the general Aemilianus, whose troops proclaimed him emperor. Gallus sent Valerian to put down the sedition. Aemilianus entered Italy, and the army murdered Gallus. Aemilianus succeeded, and Valerian succeeded him soon afterward.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
