Valens had previously been dux limitis in Dacia, but otherwise we know practically nothing about him. This is problably caused by the very short time he was emperor, for after the defeat of Licinius at Campus Ardiensis on March 1 317 Constantine forced Licinius to execute Valens, which happened sometime later. Licinius would use the same trick (with as much success) in the second civil war with Constantine by appointing Martinianus co-emperor. Dacia, in ancient geography the land of the Daci, a subtribe of the Getae, was a large district of Central Europe, bounded on the north by the Carpathians, on the south by the Danube, on the west by the Tisa (Tisza river, in Hungary), on the east by the Tyras... Sextus Marcius(?) Martinianus (? - 325) was Roman emperor from July to September 18, 324. ...
