Constantius Gallus

Emperor A. D. 351 - 354

Constantius Gallus was a cousin of Constantius II. Constantius made him caesar in A. D. 351. Gallus was sent to govern the Eastern provinces but soon gained a reputation as a harsh and oppressive tyrant. The citizens voiced their complaints loudly to Constantius II and appeared to be on the verge of revolt. Constantius Gallus was recalled to Milan to answer to his cousin the emperor but was arrested and executed while on the way to answer the summons.
