Member of the The Tetrarchy dynasty.

Coins for this issuer were issued from 317 until 324.

Licinius the Younger was the son of Licinius I and Constantia. His birth provoked a succession struggle and the ultimate fall of his father from power, as Constantine sought to have his sons become Caesars in the west. The peace treaty between Licinius and Constantine of 317 allowed for the joint accession of Constantine’s sons and Licinius II as Caesars in 317; Licinius II died when Constantine defeated his father near the Bosphorus, sent them to live as private citizens, and then had them executed.
