'''Procopius''' ([[326]] - [[26 Mayıs]] [[366]]), [[Valentinian I. Valentinianus ]]'e karşı imparatorluğunu ilan eden Klikya yerlisi, [[Constantinus hanedanı]] mensubu.
[[Ammianus Marcellinus]], Procopius'un Klikya yerlisi olduğunu söyler. Procopius, Anne tarafından İmparator [[Julian]]'ın kuzenidir.
Procopius took part in the emperor Julian's campaign against the [[Sassanid dynasty|Persian Empire]] in [[363]]. He was entrusted of leading 30,000 men towards Armenia, joining King [[Arsaces]], and later return to Julian camp. At the time of Julian's death, there were rumors that he had intended Procopius to be his successor, but when [[Jovian]] was elected emperor by the Roman army, Procopius went into hiding to preserve his life. The ancient historians differ on the exact details of Procopius' life in hiding, but agree that he returned to public knowledge at [[Chalcedon]] before the house of the [[Roman Senate|senator]] Strategius suffering from starvation and ignorant of current affairs.
By that time, Jovian was dead, and [[Valentinian I. Valentinianus]] shared the purple with his brother [[Valens]]. Procopius immediately moved to declare himself emperor. He bribed two legions that were resting at [[Constantinople]] to support his efforts, and took control of the imperial city. Shortly after this he proclaimed himself Emperor on [[September 28]], [[365]], and quickly took control of the provinces of [[Thrace]], and later [[Bithynia]].
Valens was left with the task of dealing with this rebel, and over the next months struggled with both cities and units that wavered in their allegiance. Eventually their armies met at the [[Battle of Thyatira]], and Procopius' forces were defeated. He fled the battlefield, but was betrayed to Valens by two of his remaining followers. Valens had all three executed [[May 27]], [[366]].
