Eudocia, Augusta 2 January 423 - 20 October 460 A.D.

Eudocia was selected by Pulcheria to wed her brother, Theodosius II. By 444 A.D., however, Pulcheria had her exiled to Jerusalem (perhaps due to adultery). There, Eudocia spent the remainder of her life in religious works and was buried in St Stephen, the church that she founded. She was later made a saint whose image appears in icons. Visit the Eudocia page in NumisWiki (click on her name) to read a poem written by Eudocia.

There, Eudocia spent the remainder of her life in religious works and was buried in St Stephen, the church that she founded. She was later made a saint whose image appears in icons. This type was apparently minted about the time she was exiled, however, Eudocia seems to have retained the title Augusta until her death.
