Like many figures of the mid-third century A.D., especially in regards to the women, little is known for certain about the life of Cornelia Salonina. She married Gallienus in 243 A.D. Ten years later, he was declared Augustus and ruled alongside his father Valerian. Shortly after his ascension, Salonina was awarded the title of Augusta in 254 A.D. After Gallienus was murdered 268 A.D., Salonina was executed along with the rest of his family. - (LC.321)
