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
