Victor (Flavius)

Please add updates or make corrections to the NumisWiki text version as appropriate.
Flavius Victor, the son of Magnus Maximus, who ruled Spain, Gaul, and Britain AD 383, was associated by his father in the empire with the title of Augustus. Magnus Maximus was defeated by Theodosius I on the banks of the Save, and fled to Aquileia, but was given up by the people and killed by the soldiers. Arbogastes, the genaral of Theodsius I, seized Flavius Victor, who had been left in Gaul, and put him to death in AD 388.
