Coins of Rome about Parthia:
Maximian (A.D. 286-305)

Aurelius Valerius Maximianus was born in Pannonia of humble origin. He was associated with the emperor Diocletian. He abdicated with Diocletian in A.D. 305, but returned to champion the cause of his son, Maxentius, who had claimed the throne in opposition to Galerius and Constantius. Because of complicity in a plot against Constantine, he was ordered to end his own life.

See the biography of Maximianus Herculius at De Imperatoribus Romanis, an online encyclopedia of Roman emperors.
