Galba: going back 2200 years

One of the theories about the origin of the surname Galba is that the name was derived from Galbanum. According Suetonius (a historian who wrote " the life of Galba") it is because some think that it was after having for a long time unsuccessfully besieged a town in Spain, he at last set fire to it by torches smeared with galbanum, others because during a long illness he made constant use of galbeum, that is to say of remedies wrapped in wool.

Records discribing the first Galba I could trace back goes back to 211 B.C.
