Obverse image of a coin of Eugenius

Member of the House of Theodosius dynasty.

Coins for this issuer were issued from 392 until 394.

When Valentinian II died, Arbogastes chose Eugenius as his successor. Eugenius was originally a teacher of rhetoric and grammar, not cut out for ruling, and Arbogastes effectively ruled through him. Theodosius I figured out that Arbogastes was running the show, and marched into Italy in 394. He put Eugenius to death and Arbogastes committed suicide somewhere in the mountains.
