    From the Morris Collection. Ex Trau Collection - Auction Adolph Hess, Lucerne and Gilhofer & Ranschburg, Vienna, May 22 1935, lot 4652. Ex Montagu Collection, Auction Rollin & Feuardent, Paris, April 20 1896, lot 977.

    Ruling in the West with Honorius, Constantius III might have been the one person to reverse the ill tide that had swept over the Western Empire due to the incompetence of Honorius. His army defeated the Visigoths and recaptured Honorius' sister, Galla Placidia, from the Visigoths whom he immediately married. Their children were Princess Honoria and the future emperor Valentinian III. He supposedly died of illness in 421.
