Delmatius, Caesar 18 September 335 - mid 337 A.D.

Flavius Julius Delmatius was made caesar by his uncle Constantine the Great and tasked with governing Thrace and Macedonia. After his uncle's death, Delmatius along with a number of his relatives and many Roman officials were murdered or executed. One or all of Constantine's sons, the three Augusti, undoubtedly ordered the killings but all denied responsibility for the purge.

Dalmatius was son of another Flavius Dalmatius, censor, and nephew of Constantine I. Dalmatius and his brother Hannibalianus were educated at Tolosa (Toulouse) by rhetor Exuperius. On 18 September 335, he was raised to the rank of Caesar, with the control of Thracia, Achaea and Macedonia. Dalmatius died in late summer 337, killed by his own soldiers. It is possible that his death was related to the purge that hit the imperial family at the death of Constantine, and organized by Constantius II with the aim of removing any possible claimant to the throne.
