Saxon raids continue in Britain.  The new Roman emperor, Carus began a campaign against the Persians and took upper Mesopotamia.  Because of Persian weakness, he continued east of the Tigres River.  However, Carus died on the way.  His successor, Numerianus and and his son, co-emperor Carinus, returned west.  Carinus wanted to be emperor of the east and the west and so fought Diocletian for this honor.  During one of the battles, Carinus was slain by one of his officers.  Diocletian, once an officer under Carus, slew the Praetorian prefect accused of the murders of Carus, Numerianus and Carinus and was proclaimed emperor of all of Rome.

Notable Battles
285 Margus (Morava) between Diocletian and Carinus.
