Not much is known about Romulus. He was the son of Maxentius and served as Consul in A. D 308 and 309. As is the case with many of the more obscure emperors and members of the imperial family, Romulus is little known today except among coin collectors. Coins struck in his name are scarce or even very rare. One bronze piece has an eagle above a domed temple on the reverse and it is highly sought after because Romulus is the only one for whom the type was struck.
