Name:  Carinus
Brief biography:  Roman Emperor 283-284.
Nationality:  Roman
Occupation:  Emperor
Period of rule:  283-284
Date of death:  284

Carinus was the elder son of the Emperor Carus, and made Caesar to him in 282. By 283 Carinus was raised to the rank of Augustus, and left to keep control in Rome, while Carus and his other son, Numerian, marched East to fight the Sasanians. When Carus died suddenly later in 283, Carinus was left as senior emperor with his brother Numerian as his junior co-emperor. From Carinus's coins, we know that his wife was called Magnia Urbica, and that he had either a son or a grandson named Nigrinianus. Carinus was murdered in 284, and he was succeeded by Diocletian.
