Uranius Antoninus is unknown from the ancient literary sources, although Zosimus perhaps confuses this usurper with two usurpers he names as Antoninus and Uranius during the reign of Severus Alexander. He established his government at Emesa in Syria, probably in response to repeated Persian attacks rather than as a challenge to Rome. In any event, it appears he was finally subdued when Valerian I marched to recover the East.

Coin from CNG coins, through Wildwinds.
