Politics and world events

Emperor Constantius II , who has been the sole ruler of the Roman Empire since the death of the usurper Magnentius last year , has to struggle with some problems in 354. In Germania he defeats the Alamanni and concludes a peace treaty with the kings of Breisgau , Gundomad and Vadomar , near Augst . Constantius then takes on the victorious name Alamannicus Maximus . The situation on the Rhine remains unsettled, however, a few months later a new usurper rises up there with Silvanus . There are also conflicts in the religious field. Christological questions heated minds while the argument between Arians and Orthodox continued to smolder.

Solidus of Constantius Gallus

In the Roman East, the army master Ursicinus was able to keep the Persian Sassanids in check, but there was unrest among the population. Constantius Gallus , who had been entrusted with the administration of the Orient by the emperor three years earlier, himself strives for the dignity of the emperor and tries to win over the masses. Constantius II quotes Gallus to the west. He sent his wife Constantina , Constantius ' sister, to mediate. However, after Constantina died on the journey, Constantius tried Gallus and finally had him executed. Even Julian , the younger brother of Gallus is quoted to the imperial court.
