The chronology o Maximian's appyntment tae Augustus is somewhit uncertain (Corcoran, "Before Constantine", 40; Southern, 142). It is sometimes suggestit that Maximian wis appyntit Augustus frae Julie 285, an never appyntit Caesar. This suggestion haes nae received much support (Potter, 281; Southern, 142; follaein De Casearibus 39.17).
