Valens is credited with the commission of a short history of the Roman State. This work produced by Valens’ secretary Euthropius, and known with the name Breviarium ab Urbe condita, tells the story of Rome from its founding. According to some historians, Valens was motivated by the necessity of learning Roman history, that he, the royal family and their appointees might better mix with the Roman Senatorial class. Valens was sometimes known as the Last True Roman Emperor. His successor was Theodosius I.
