CNG state - L. Domitius Alexander led a
short-lived revolt against Maxentius from 308 to 311, holding Africa and
Sardinia. There is little known about this usurper, but there is evidence in an
inscription (CIL VIII, 22183) that he and Constantine allied themselves in
opposition to Maxentius. P. Salama in "Recherches numismatiques sur l'usurpateur
africain L. Domitius Alexander," Proceedings of the International Numismatic
Congress 1973, p. 365, note 2, suggests that at the latest, the pact was entered
into by autumn of 310.
