This reference book provides a factual framework for the political history of the Roman Empire in the late third and early fourth centuries. It will become a standard handbook for historians and students.

Timothy Barnes establishes dates and official titles, gives chronologies for individual emperors, lists each emperor’s principal residences and charts his travels, catalogs officeholders, and records administrative divisions. The facts are documented and organized in a clear and concise fashion. The period covered is the same as that of Barnes’s narrative history, Constantine and Eusebius.
