This chapter discusses the peace that followed after six years of conflict between the Goths and Gratian. It looks at the treaty of 382, which renewed Constantine's special relationship with the Goths. This treaty helped grant the Goths with land to farm, highlighted their military obligations to the Roman state, and provided a framework for coexistence.
