From 383 to 387 Maximus was joint ruler of the West with Valentinian II., whom he had left in command Of Italy rather from motives Of policy than Of clemency but in the latter year he threw Off the mask and, crossing the Alps, descended upon his colleague whose court was at Milan. Valentinian fled to Thessalonica and there threw himself on the mercy Of Theodosius. Once more that general was to save the situation.
