Alexandrian Peace Treaty (Fall of Christianity)
Alexandrian Peace Treaty was peace treaty signed in Alexandria (June 14, 392 AD) by Roman Eastern Empire Flavius Theodosius II. Augustus and leader of republican rebels, dictator-consul Tiberius Cornelius Aveciana.
APT was direct consequence of "Battle of Benghazi" where republican insurgent army totally defeated Roman Empire Army and decimated most of African Roman forces.
There were two peace treaty proposals. Theodosian and Avecianian.
Avecianian peace proposal:
"I, Tiberius Cornelius Aveciana, with power of popular senate of Roman Popular Republic, dictator of Carthagia and Tripolitania, also dictator of Tanger, northern areas, Mauretania, Caesaeria and Cyrenicia, I am proposing truce and peace to emperor Flavius Theodosius Augustus, emperor of Byzancia and Anatolia, on these conditions. First, all armies of Roman Empire will immediately leave territories of Africa. Second, slaves located at African territories will be confiscated and gathered under administration of Roman Popular Republic. Third, all citizens of Roman Empire will be granted right to became citizens of Roman Popular Republic, if they do not want to be citizens of popular republic, they will be expelled from republic territory on expenses of Roman Eastern Empire. Fourth, in next 15 years, prices of grain from egyptian farms will be doubled, to 56 sestercius per modus. Fifth, half of Roman Army will leave Judea and Syria, to proof Roman Empire want peace and stability. Sixth, Empire will not arming their forces in these territories and Empire will allow access for military inspectors in Judea, Syria, Levanta and east Anatolia. And seventh, traders and craftsmen from Republic in territories of Roman Empire will not pay any taxes for Empire. If you will violate these conditions, armed forces of republic will start military actions with goal to conquest Constantinopole. Signed: Tiberius Cornelius Aveciana.
Theodosian peace proposal:
I, Emperor Flavius Theodosius Augustus, emperor of Orient provincies and Roman Eastern Empire, ruler of Africa and Syria, same as Anatolia, proposing to dictator Tiberius Cornelius Aveciana and people senate of Roman Popular Republic, rulers of Western and Northern Africa, truce and peace with this concessions. First, civilian administration of Egypt will be hand over to republican administration. Second, quarter of profits from grain selling will be send to Republic. Third, 30% of slaves...
Whole Theodosian proposal is unknown, because dictator Aveciana stopped emperor Theodosian in reading and strongly threaten emperor by mighty forces of republican army. After devasting defeat of Roman Empire Army in Benghazi, Theodosius agreed with radical Avecian peace proposal.
For republic - this proposal was great political success. Republic gain absolute control over Africa and large farms in Egypt. All christians were expelled from republic and sent to Judea and Syria. Economical impact on Roman Popular Republic was much more bigger. RPR gain control over more then two millions people, large resources, farms, research and industrial capacities.
For empire - this proposal was drastic and hurtfull failure. Proposal led to disorders and protests in Rome and Constantinopole and even to famine, barbarian invasions in Germania and Gaulia and collapse of Roman Army in England and Wales.
