Maximus of Barcelona, 410 - 411 A.D.
Maximus was one of six men claiming to be Emperor in 410: Honorius (in Ravenna, the legitimate emperor of the West), Theodosius II (in Constantinople, the legitimate emperor of the East), Priscus Attalus (in Rome), Constantine III (in Arelatum), Constans II (in Vienne), and Maximus (in Barcino). His reverse legend, however, indicates there are only three emperors: Theodosius II, Honorius and himself.
