Flavius Nepotianus, 10 May to 7 June 351 A.D.

Nepotianus was the son of Eutropia, a stepsister of Constantine the Great. In 350 A.D. he proclaimed himself emperor, usurping the usurper Magnentius. He took control of Rome at the head of a band of gladiators. He was probably prompted by some of the senators of Rome. During his short reign he struck coins for Constantius II as well as in his own name. He was probably expecting help from the East. However, Magnentius sent General Marcellinus who easily disposed of Nepotianus after a reign of only 28 days. Nepotianus' mother and many senators were executed with him. Nepotianus' reign has traditionally been dated 3 - 30 June 350 A.D., but Curtis Clay has convincingly argued for a revision to May - June 351 A.D.

Struck by Sextus Pompey after his victory over Salvidienus and relates to his acclamation as the Son of Neptune. Although Sextus Pompey was the supreme naval commander, Octavian had the Senate declare him a public enemy. He turned to piracy and came close to defeating Octavian. He was, however, defeated by Marcus Agrippa at the naval battle of Naulochus (3 September 36 B.C.). He was executed by order of Mark Antony in 35 B.C.
