Historical Notes:
Delmatius, also known as Dalmatius, was appointed Caesar in 335 by his uncle, Constantine the Great, and given control of Thrace, Achaea and Macedonia. After Constantine's death in 337, a bloody purge of the extended imperial family was ordered, either by one of Constantine's sons (Constantius II) or by all three (including Constantine II and Constans). Delmatius and his brother Hanniballianus, both holders of high office, were probably the primary targets of the purge, but other members of their family and officers supporting them were also murdered.
