Domitius Domitianus c.296 – 297 A.D.

This obscure usurper gained control of Alexandria around the year 296. Diocletian diverted his efforts in regaining this key province and set Alexandria under a long-term siege. Eight months later Domitius’s forces blinked and handed over the pretender to Diocletian who had him promptly executed for treason.
