Scientific review article
Autor: Svetlana Pantelić

Summary: Constantius Chlorus, father of Constantine the Great, was probably born in 250 A.D. in Dardania, a province of Moesia Superior, although there are some assumptions that he was actually born in Nais, today’s city of Niš. His concubine Helena (sometime between 271 and 283 A.D) bore him the eldest son Constantine, whereas his married wife Theodora, (step-)daughter of Augustus Maximilianus Herculius, bore him three daughters and three sons. He was appointed Caesar in 293 A.D. He died in today’s Edinburgh on 25 July 306. His image can be found on silver-plated bronze folles and precious metal coins.
