Abstract
The main object of this article is the problem of divergence in the works written by the Roman historians in the 4th and 5th centuries, when they speak about death of the emperor Valerian. One of the possible explanations is the difference in political and religious preferences of these authors, for whom image of the ruler’s death was a very important part of his representation, as well as the doctrinal model for the next generations.
