About Anastasia

Anastasia (Daughter of Constantius I Chlorus)

Anastasia, the half-sister of Constantine I, was the daughter of Constantius I and Theodora; she was married to a certain Bassianus. If the text of Anonymous Valesianus (5.14-15) is to be believed, the couple had a hand in causing the first civil war between Constantine I and Licinius in 314 A.D. Constantine sent Julius Constantius to Licinius to urge him to accept Bassianus as Caesar of Italy; the latter allegedly took up arms against the emperor through the agency of his brother Senecio, a trusted agent of Licinius. Constantine was informed of the plot and ordered that Bassianus be killed. When Licinius did not return Senecio to the emperor for punishment, the easy peace between the two emperors ceased.
