Summary A study of the emperor Galerius, presenting how he interacted with his co-emperor the great Diocletian and how their policies were developed. It argues that Diocletian's apparent reforms to the imerial office, with the invention of what is commonly called a 'tetrarchy', are inventions of modern historiography
