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.
