Maurikios (Lat. Flavius Mauricius Tiberius / Middle Greek Φλάβιος Μαυρίκιος Τιβέριος; * 539 in Arabissos; † 27 November 602 in Chalcedon).
Was emperor of the Eastern Roman Empire from 13 August 582 to 27 November 602 and one of the most important Late Antique or early Byzantine rulers.
His reign was marked above all by defensive battles on the frontiers.
Flavius Mauricius Tiberius came from Arabissos in Cappadocia and was a successful general before he ascended the throne in 582.
The most important source on his reign is the Greek historian Theophylaktos Simokates, whose Histories are considered the last ancient work of history.
