A person born of a noble family of Gaul who assumed the imperial title under the weak reign of Honorius, and, placing himself at the head of a mixed army of Burgundians, Alemanni, Alani, etc., took possession of part of Gaul, A.D. 411. Ataulphus (Athawulf), king of the Visigoths, offered to join Iovinus, and share Gaul between them; but the latter having declined his alliance, Ataulphus made peace with Honorius, attacked and defeated Iovinus, and, having taken him prisoner, delivered him to Dardanus, prefect of Gaul, who had him put to death at Narbo (Narbonne), A.D. 412.
