Historical background


Allectus

(293-296) Allectus

Carausius reigned from 286 when he was assassinated in 293 at the instigation of Allectus. He was murdered in late spring or early summer. The reign of Allectus lasted a little less than three years. Constance prepared a great expedition at the end of 295 to reconquer England. The invading army arrived early 296 and Allectus was killed in a battle near London which opened its doors. The scene of the arrival in London of Constantius will be immortalized on a beautiful medallion ten aurei Workshop Trier.
