Gaius Julius Verus Maximus
|Caesar of the Roman Empire|
Denarius of Maximus
|Reign||236 – May 238|
Gaius Julius Verus Maximus (217/220 – May 238), also incorrectly called Gaius Julius Verus Maximinus or Maximinus the Younger was the son of the Roman Emperor Maximinus Thrax and his wife, Caecilia Paulina.
Maximinus appointed his son Maximus caesar around 236, but he held little real power. Both were murdered by the Praetorian Guard in May 238, during the Siege of Aquileia in the Year of the Six Emperors.
