Eutropia (died 350) was the daughter of Emperor Constantius Chlorus and of Flavia Maximiana Theodora, and therefore half-sister of Emperor Constantine I.

Biography[edit]

She married Virius Nepotianus and bore him a son, Nepotianus, who later became a short-lived Roman usurper, when Magnentius was proclaimed emperor in 350; after a period of twenty-eight days in early June 350, Nepotianus was killed, and probably this led to the execution of Eutropia by order of Magnentius' magister officiorum Marcellinus. Virius Nepotianus was consul in 336.
