Theodora, Augusta, 2nd Wife of Constantius I, Grandmother of Caesars and Emperors
Constantius I divorced his first wife Helena to marry Theodora, the daughter or step-daughter of the emperor Maximianus. Her grandchildren included Delmatius, Hanniballianus, Constantius Gallus, Julian II, Licinius II and Nepotian. Her coins were struck after Constantine's death and after the massacre of most of her descendants. Although the date of her death is unknown, her title Augusta and her coinage were probably posthumous. The reason for her coinage is uncertain, but it may have been directed by Constantine the Great's will.
