Emperor Aurelian (270 – 275 A.D). He helped the Roman Empire regain its power during the latter part of the third century and the beginning of the fourth. Aurelian strengthened the position of the Sun god, Sol or Oriens, as the divinity of the Roman pantheon. His intention was to give to all the peoples of the Empire, civilian or soldiers, easterners or westerners, a single god they could believe in without betraying their own gods.
