Allectus was the finance minister to British emperor Carausius. He was also his murderer in 293 when he also assumed power. He was defeated and deposed by Constantius Chlorus, in 296. During the last battle, Allectus himself was killed, having removed all insignia in the hope that his body would not be identified.
