Chapter Summary

This chapter provides a brief catalogue of raids and invasions by barbarian tribes in several regions of the Roman empire. It is a survey of all attacks during the entire reign of the Pannonian brothers (364-378), but within the context the suggestion is that the trouble began in early 364. Valentinian had been acclaimed emperor at Nicaea, some embassies arrived, which brought to him, presumably still in Nicaea, golden crowns originally intended for Jovian. Valentinian thinks that he is on the brink of collapsing, so that any further delay in providing himself with an imperial partner must be avoided.

Keywords: invasions; Nicaea; raids; Roman empire; Valentinian
