Murphysboro Centuries, 3rd secular

Balbinus, 238 AD
Pupienus, 238 AD
- the Senate had supported the Gordians - when they died, these two were selected as co-emperors (this was the first time for two co-equal emperors) - they reigned 99 days, then the imperial guard put them to death because of jealousy over an elite group of German bodyguards
