Flavius Claudius Constantius (originally named Gallus) was Constantius II’s cousin. He became Caesar in March 351 and changed his name. He ruled the Eastern provinces from Antioch but was a harsh governor and his subjects complained to the emperor. Constantius II summoned him to Milan but intercepted him in Pola (Istria) where he was tried and put to death in 354.
