This is Publius Licinius Valerianus Augustus (193-260), also known as Valerian the Elder. He was a Roman Emperor from 253-260. He was taken captive by Persian King Shapur I after the Battle of Edessa, becoming the only Roman Emperor who was captured as a prisoner of war, resulting in wide-ranging instability across the Empire.
