Pupienus (Marcus Clodius Pupienus Maximus Augustus) jointly ruled with Balbinus as Roman Emperor for just three months in 238 AD, during the tumultuous 'Year of the Six Emperors'.

The reverse legend, AMOR MVTVVS AVGG, featuring on coinage of both Balbinus and Pupienus, translates as 'Mutual affection of the Emperors' and symbolises the equal and joint rule of the co-emperors.
