From the Dr. Jay M. Galst Collection, purchased from Herb Kreindler.

Constantine III was proclaimed emperor by the legions in Britain following the assassinations of the usurpers Marcus and Gratianus. Hoping to secure his position, he sailed to Gaul where he met little opposition. Constantine was officially recognized by Honorius, although Theodosius and Arcadius failed to follow Honorius’s lead. Constantine had early successes, defeating the local barbarians and negotiating agreements with the Alamanni and Burgundians, but his attempt to enter Italy failed. Attacked by his own general Gerontius and soon afterwards the troops of Honorius, Constantine was killed in 411.
