Vetranio commanded the legions in Illyria and Pannonia in 350 when Constans was treacherously destroyed and his throne seized by Magnentius. Vetranio was proclaimed Emperor by his troops ; but at the end of ten months he resigned his pretensions in favor of Constantius, by whom he was treated with great kindness, and permitted to retire to Prusa, in Bithynia, where he passed the remaining six years of his life.
