The Massacre of Thessalonica was a retaliatory action by the Roman Emperor Theodosius I in 390 against the inhabitants of Thessalonica, who had risen in revolt. In April 390, Butheric, the Roman military commander in command of Illyricum (which included Thessalonica), had a popular charioteer arrested for a sexual offence. The populace demanded the charioteer's release and, as Butheric refused, a general mutiny ensued which cost Butheric and several other Roman authorities their lives.
