Glitius Decianus was a 33 year old, equestrian, holding the Imperial appointment of Procurator of Belgica. This meant that he was in charge of the finance of the province and answerable to the Emperor rather than the Senate. As an equestrian he was lower than the Senators in status but still a wealthy man by the standards of the Empire as a whole. By Senatorial standards his wealth was modest (3 Talents per quarter as personal income).

In other respects he was something of a traditionalist and had served with the legions in the past, acquiring a Fair reputation as a commander, with the ability to match. Glitius was a reasonably ambitious man and was looking to ensure that, in addition to acquitting himself well as procurator, he would improve his wealth and status to allow a comfortable retirement.
