Licinius I - Publius Flavius Galerius Vlerius Licianus Licinius. Emperor 307-324. Given the rank of Augustus by Galerius. He married a half-sister of Constantine the Great and with him issued the edict of Milan recognizing Christianity. He and Maximinus Daza agreed to rule jointly. Maximinus, however, attacked him and was defeated. There was not lasting amity between Licinius and Constantine and in making war upon Constantine, Licinius was seized and slain. He was probably 55 years of age at his death.(Taken from "Handbook of Ancient Greek & Roman Coins" by Zander H. Klawans)
