Hostilian. As Caesar, 250-251. Sestertius (30mm; 18.28 g). C VALENS HOSTIL MES QVINTVS N C Bare-headed and draped bust of Hostilian to right. R/ PRINCIPI IVVENTVVTIS S C Hostilian standing left in military dress, holding standard in his right hand and reversed spear in his left. Cohen 35. RIC 216a. Rare. Struck on a full flan.VF, smoothed and tooled. 

Hostilian was the younger son of Trajan Decius and stayed in Rome when his father and older brother went off on their ill-fated expedition against the Goths. After their deaths the field army acclaimed Trebonianus Gallus as emperor, but in a laudable attempt to avoid civil strife he immediately recognized Hostilian as his co-emperor. However, later in the year Hostilian fell ill and died from the plague. The coin was struck earlier, while he was only Caesar under his father.
