Magistrate and Strategos in Cyzicus/Mysia during the reigns of Valerian I and Gallienus. His name appears on coins (with portraits of the emperor Gallienus, of Kore Soteira, or Heros Kyzikos) issued both with his title of Strategos and without. ΛΟΚΕ… or Λ ΟΚΕ… in SNG France Mysie no. 618 is misread, actually there is CΤΡΑ ΛΟΚ (sic) CЄΒΗΡΟ-Υ; an identification as "Lucius" or "Lucilius" therefore seems clear. Lit.: F. Imhoof-Blumer, Monnaies grecques (1883) p. 613 no. 171; BMC Mysia p. 58 no. 280; SNG Aulock no. 1250; SNG France Mysie nos. 614, 618, 870; W. Leschhorn, Lexikon der Aufschriften auf griechischen Münzen II (2009) p. 645 s. v. Loke- and p. 800 s. v. Seberos (AD 253-268); Th. Corsten (ed.), Lexicon of Greek Personal Names V A. Coastal Asia Minor (2010) p. 402 s. v. Seoueros (no. 46) (AD 253-268).
