Diocletian was a general who became an emperor.He introduced reforms to Rome. Because the empire was too large for one person to rule, Diocletian divided it into four parts. he named officials to rule the different parts of the empire, but he had full authority. He also helped to slow inflation by issuing rules that set the price of goods.

After diocletian, Constantine came along. Constantine became emperor and to aid the economy he issued several orders. sons of workers had to follow their fathers trades, the sons of farmers had to work the land their fathers worked and the sons of soldirs had to serve in the army. he also moved the capital from constantinople to byzantium in greece
