Historical background



Jovian was born in 331 at Singidunum in Moesia. Count of domestici (Ammian Marcellin, History, XXV, 5/4), he succeeded Julian II the Philosopher on June 27, 363. Christian, he rallied to the Nicene creed and abolished Julian's anti-Christian edicts. Jovian signs peace with the Sassanid king, Sapor II (309-379). He must abandon Nisibis, Singara and part of Armenia. Jovian retired with the remnants of the army and arrived in Antioch in October 363. He assumed his first consulship on January 1, 364 in the company of his son Flavius Varronianus, a child. He died of asphyxiation by a brazier on February 17, 363 in Dadastana, a small town located between Nicaea and Ancyra. The following February 26, Valentinian was proclaimed august.
