Information from Wikipedia

  • Preferred label: Domitius Domitianus
  • Full names:
    • Domitius Domitianus
  • Title: Usurper of the Roman Empire
  • Predecessor:
  • Successor: Achilleus (Roman usurper)
  • Definition: Lucius Domitius Domitianus was a Roman usurper against Diocletian, who seized power for a short time in Aegyptus. Domitianus revolted against Diocletian in 297 AD; it is possible that the rebellion was sparked by a new tax edict, but this uncertain. Numismatic and papyrological evidence support Domitianus' claim to the purple. Domitianus died in December of the same year, when Diocletian went to Aegyptus to quell with the revolt. Domitianus' corrector, Aurelius Achilleus, who was responsible for the defense of Alexandria, appears to have succeeded to Domitianus' claim to the empire; in fact, it was only in March 298 that Diocletian succeeded in re-conquering the city.
