Obverse image of a coin of Jovianus

Member of the House of Constantine dynasty.

Coins for this issuer were issued from 363 until 364.

Flavius Jovianus was a senior commander under Julian II. When Julian died, the army chose Jovian as his successor, who immediately pulled out of the war with Parthia and began to retreat. He accidentally died on the way to Constantinople because the brazier of burning coals in his tent choked him.
