Alexander
Usurper in Carthage  AD 308 - 311

Lucius Domitius Alexander.

Domitius Alexander hailed either from Phrygia or from Pannonia and in 308 was vicarius of Africa. Early in that year Maxentius decided to strengthen the loyalty of his far-flung commanders and requested Domitiusí son Alexander as a hostage. Domitius refused to send his son. As the word spread, his troops seized the momentum and proclaimed him Augustus. The revolt lasted till the late months of 309 when the praetorian prefect Rufus and another commander loyal to Maxentius captured Domitius and executed him.

Mints: Karthago.
