Arcadius

Obverse image of a coin of Arcadius

Member of the House of Theodosius dynasty.

Coins for this issuer were issued from 383 until 408.

Flavius Arcadius was born in 377 to Theodosius I and Aelia Flacilla. His father made him Augustus in 383, and when he died in 395 Arcadius inherited the eastern half of the Empire.

Arcadius and his brother reportedly had none of their father’s great ability; Arcadius was controlled by a series of Praetorian Prefects, the empress, and less reputable characters. He died in 408, only 31 years old—apparently from a feeble constitution rather than any foul play.
