22 By the time of Theodosius’s rule, there were religious differences that seemed to threaten to split the empire. The most immediate had to do with the entrenched polytheists, who believed that the Roman Empire had endured so long because of the favor of ancient gods, such as Jupiter, Juno, and the whole Roman pantheon. Could a Christian emperor rule in the old city of Rome surrounded by temples, altars, and a powerful traditional priesthood? And, could the Empire continue half polytheist and half Christian?

If Theodosian men did not have to fight to rule, neither did Theodosian women. This principle is clearly manifested in the coin that was struck in honor of Arcadius’s wife, Eudoxia, when she was proclaimed empress in 404 (fig. 2).

He then placed both Honorius and Placidia in Serena’s care for their upbringing. Their souls he entrusted to Ambrose. In January 395, Theodosius planned to entertain the people of Milan with horse races. By lunchtime on racing day, he felt too ill to attend and sent Honorius in his stead. While praying with Ambrose for his soul, his health deteriorated. He died that night, January 17, 395. Placidia was left an orphan at seven years old. The court at Milan prepared a great funeral for Theodosius, which took place forty days after his death.
