Nigrinian, son of Carinus, died before 283 A.D.

Nigrinian is only known from his coinage and an inscription which identifies him as Carus' grandson. Nigrinian's coinage was certainly struck late in Carinus' reign and thus he must have been Carinus' son. All coins of Nigrinian were posthumous, struck at the Rome mint, and are very rare.
