Successor of Julian II who died on the battlefield, Jovian was Roman Emperor for 8 months in 363 AD to 364. To extricate his army from Persia, the new ruler immediately concluded a peace treaty, ceding to the Persians all Roman territory east of the Tigris River, together with the cities of Singara (modern Sinjār, Iraq) and Nisibis (modern Nusaybin, Turkey). Some of Jovian’s contemporaries, believing that the army could have fought its way out, considered this treaty to be dishonourable. Apparently, he was asphyxiated in his sleep by a charcoal heater left burning in his tent February 17th 364 AD... * Eunapius states that Jovian was instigated by his wife to burn down the library in Antioch. Ammianus Marcellinus, Zonaras and Philostorgius make no mention of the burning of the library during Jovian's stay. * In September 363 AD, Jovian reestablished Christianity as the state religion, restored the labarum ("Chi-Rho") as an army standard, and revoked Julian's edicts against Christians, but did not close no pagan temple. * Ammianus Marcellinus suggests his death was due to strangulation. We all agree that he won't win a popularity contest, but maybe you have in your collection some coins of this poor intoxicated Emperor. So please show us your Jovian's examples !
