Elagabal (* 204, † 11 March 222 in Rome)
Roman emperor 218 - 222.

His original name was Varius Avitus Bassianus.

As emperor he called himself Marcus Aurel(l)ius Antoninus, to tie in with the Antonines like his alleged father Caracalla.

The name Elagabal, was attached to the emperor long after his death, as he greatly revered the god Elagabal.

Elagabal (ancient Greek Ἐλαγάβαλος Elagábalos, Latinised Elagabalus or Heliogabalus) is the name of an ancient sun god whose cult was centred in the Syrian city of Emesa.
