Domitius Domitianus
Usurper in Egypt  AD 296 - 297

Lucius Domitius Domitianus.

It is not clear whether Domitius Domitianus was the head of the revolt against Diocletian that flared up in Egypt in the summer of 296, or, as some sources state, the credit should go to his corrector Aurelius Achilleus. In any case, their attempt at independence and reach for the purple proved futile. In late 297 Diocletian was already busy in Egypt putting down the revolt and it seems that Domitius might have died in December of that year under unclear circumstances. Aurelius Achilleus held on till March of the following year, holing himself up in Alexandria, and then succumbed to the inevitable.

Mints: Alexandria.
