Third Civil War between Constantine and Licinius[edit]

Although the article states that Martinianus was elevated during the second civil war between Constantine and Licinius, it was in fact the third - the first was in 314, which included the Battle of Cibalae (where Licinius just managed to hold his own), the second was in 316-317, which included the Battle of Mardia, and the third which involved Martinianus occured in 324.

Cibalae and Mardia are usually considered to have been in the same campaign, with the year of the campaign being variously placed in 314 and 316 depending on conflicting sources. Cibalae and Mardia being in different campaigns makes no military sense.Urselius (talk) 19:04, 3 November 2010 (UTC)

Naming[edit]

The title of this article should be changed to Martinian, to bring it in line with Valentinian, Justinian etc. etc. Urselius (talk) 08:10, 20 October 2010 (UTC)
