Crispus: Roman Emperor from 317-326 AD and son of Constantine the Great. He defeated the navy of Licinius I at the Battle of the Hellespont in 324 AD. Two years later his father Constantine ordered him to be executed, soon followed by the ordered death of his wife Fausta. There are different theories on the reason for these deaths, but the true explanation is still unclear.

VOT X: Vows (prayers) for ten years of rule.
