Member of the The Tetrarchy dynasty.

Coins for this issuer were issued from 305 until 313.

Maximinus II Daza (or Daia), full name Galerius Valerius Maximinus, was the nephew of Galerius (q.v.) who made him his junior colleague, or Caesar, of the Eastern Empire (with control of Syria and Egypt) in AD 305. He rose to full Augustus in AD 310 after a brief intermediate period holding the title Filius Augustorum, or son of the emperors, AD 308-9.

Maximinus was known for intolerance towards Christians. Even after Galerius's edict of toleration in 310 seeking to end the Great Persecution, Maximinus still sought to revitalise paganism. He is claimed to be responsible of the martyrdom of St Catherine of Alexandria (q.v.). On Galerius' death (AD 311), he took over Asia Minor and had designs on Thrace, but was defeated by Licinius I (q.v.). His death followed later in the same year of this setback (AD 313); either from disease, or suicide.
