Obverse image of a coin of Maximian

Member of the The Tetrarchy dynasty.

Coins for this issuer were issued from 286 until 310.

Maximian was born ca 250. He was adopted by Diocletian and made co-Augustus in 286; Maximian effectively ruled the western part of the empire while Diocletian dealt with problems in the north and east.

With Diocletian, Maximian restored the Forum in Rome and built a set of baths even bigger than Caracalla’s. He adopted Constantius as his son and successor when Diocletian adopted Maximian; he abdicated power with Diocletian in 305. However, Maximian did not take well to retirement. As a Senior Augustus, he continued to involve himself at times in affairs of the empire. He died at Marseilles in 310; he may have been murdered, or may have committed suicide.
