Victor, Fla'vius

the son of Maximus, who ruled as emperor in Spain, Gaul, and Britain, was associated by his father in the government with the title of Augustus. While Maximus marched into Italy to wrest that country from the feeble hands of Valentinian II., Victor was left behind in Gaul. Theodosius himself conquered Maximus; and shortly afterwards Arbogastes, the general of Theodosius, defeated Victor and put him to death. For further details see MAXIMUS, p. 997, and THEODOSIUS, p. 1065.
