In accordance with the fact that Maximinus and Constantine had joined the imperial college before Emperor Licinius, Licinius is moved from second to fourth place in the official hierarchy.
  • July 11Maximian, retired co-emperor, rebels against Constantine I while the latter is campaigning against the Franks. He attempts to make himself emperor at Arles. Constantine marches his army along the Rhine and embarks his troops at Chalon-sur-Saône. Maximian flees to Marseille where he is besieged and surrenders. Constantine encourages his suicide and Maximian, age 60, hangs himself. Emperor Maxentius condemns the killing of his father.

CommerceEdit
  • At Trier, Constantine orders the minting of a new coin, the solidus, in an effort to offset the declining value of the denarius and bring stability to the imperial currency by restoring a gold standard. The solidus (later known as the bezant) will be minted in the Byzantine Empire without change in weight or purity until the 10th century.
