Gratian

Obverse image of a coin of Gratian

Member of the House of Valentinian dynasty.

Coins for this issuer were issued from 367 until 383.

Flavius Gratianus was the son of Valentinian I and Severa. In 367 he was given the rank of Augustus, though only 7 years old. He appointed the general Theodosius to govern the troubled eastern provinces; in 383 the commander of the British legions, Magnus Maximus, proclaimed himself emperor and Gratian’s army deserted him. The young emperor fled to the Alps but was killed at Lugdunum (Lyons).

His reign was considered auspicious and he issued a coin with the inscription ‘GLORIA NOVI SAECULI’ on the reverse.
