Province of the Dioecesis Italiae created under the Tetrarchy before c. ad 294 (CIL VI, 1418 = ILS Dessau 2941), but, like several other Italian provinces, omitted (presumably in error) from the Verona List. The Notitia Dignitatum places Campania in the Dioecesis Italiae (occ. II, 19) under the authority of the Vicarius Urbis Romae (XIX, 3), indicating that it formed part of Italia Suburbicaria. The area lay between the Tiber, Anio, Garigliano, Sangro, Sebeto, and Silaro rivers. It was governed from Capua by a Corrector up till c.324, thereafter by a Consularis (cf. Not. Dig. occ. I, 59; XIX, 3), though briefly under Gratian the governor had the rank of Proconsul (ILS Dessau 1262–3).
