On 15 Mar 351, Constantius II elevated his cousin Constantius Gallus to Caesar. Gallus was married to Constantius` sister Constantina and put in charge of the Eastern Roman Empire. On 7 May 351, after Constantius Gallus arrived at Antioch, the Jews began a rebellion in Palestine. The Roman garrison in Diocesarea was wiped out. In 352, Constantius Gallus sent his magister equitum (general) Ursicinus to put down the Jewish revolt in Palestine. The rebels destroyed Diopolis and Tiberias. The Romans razed Diocesarea to the ground and Ursicinus gave the order to kill thousands of Jews, even children. Despite his success quelling the revolt, in 354, after hearing unfavorable reports, Constantius recalled Gallus to Constantinople. Constantius striped him of his powers and later had him executed. On 6 Nov 355, Constantius II raised his cousin Julian (later called the Apostate) to rank of Caesar. Julian was married to Constantius` sister Helena and put in charge of the Western Provinces.

How To Bid

1. Register for a Forum Ancient Coins account - if you haven't already.
2. Login to your account - if you haven't already.
3. Learn about the seller - Read feedback and ratings left by others to assure that the seller is trustworthy.  Forum bans sellers that have customer complaints, but it is still a good idea to check the seller's feedback.
4. Know the details - read the item description, seller terms, and shipping charges closely.  Sellers are required to accept PayPal (and you should only pay with PayPal), to guarantee delivery, and to guarantee authenticity without a time limit.  Read the sellers listing for other terms and return policies.
5. If you have questions - contact the seller FORVM AUCTIONS before you bid (click on the seller's username to send a message to the seller).
6. Place your bid!  Bid the maximum amount you want to pay for the item.  Your bid is an automated proxy bid and the amount will always be kept secret.  The program will automatically bid for you, the lowest possible amount (one increment above the next highest bid), and only up to your maximum.  If other bids are placed before the auction closes, the system will automatically bid for you again, but again only the minimum amount needed, and only up to your maximum.  If someone else bids more than your maximum, you will not be the high bidder; to win, you will need to place a higher bid before the auction closes.  If you are the high bidder at the end of the auction, you are the winner.  As the winner of the auction, you only pay the lowest possible winning bid, which may be less than your maximum bid.
