The year 70 d. C, known as the year of the four emperors, faced four suitors to the imperial government.
The generals Galba, Otón, Vitelio and Vespasiano.
When dying Galba, the troops of Vitelio and Otón, faced in the first battle of Cremona, where the second one found the death after being defeated its legions.
