C. Messius Quintus Trajanus Decius, was born at Bubalia, in Pannonia. He was sent by the Emperor Philippus in 249 to restore subordination in the army of Moesia, but the troops compelled him to accept the purple. The short reign of Decius was occupied in warring against Goths. He fell in battle with his son in 251.
