Ancient Roman Imperial Coinage of Flavius Victor. Flavius Victor was the son of usurper Magnus Maximus.
He may have been made Augustus as an infant. Although he appears as an adult, he was likely only four or five years old when his coins were struck. After negotiations, Theodosius I recognized Magnus Maximus and Flavius Victor as emperors in Britannia and Gaul.
Gratian's brother Valentinian II retained Italy, Pannonia, Hispania, and Africa. In 387, Maximus' reckless ambition led him to invade Italy. Victor was left behind in Trier. Maximus was defeated, surrendered and was executed by Theodosius I in 388. That fall, Theodosius' general Arbogast went to Trier and strangled young Flavius Victor.Æ4 Nummus (bronze) 1.18g 13.5mm.
