Decentius

Emperor A. D.

Decentius was the brother of Magnentius and was Magnentius’ Caesar. Upon hearing of his brother's suicide, Decentius also gave up hope of any victory and killed himself a few days later on August 18, A. D. 353. Most of the coins of Decentius are quite a lot like those of Magnentius but are less common because Decentius was only a caesar from A. D. 351 - 353
