Decentius Caesar of the Roman Empire from 350 to 353.
Magnus Decentius was a usurper of the Western Roman Empire against emperor Constantius II. Decentius was possibly the cousin or brother of Magnentius, who had revolted against Constantius on 18 January 350.

Magnentius elevated Decentius to the rank of Caesar that winter, to oversee the defence of Gaul and the Rhine frontier. He was appointed consul ordinarius in 352.

When Magnentius was defeated by Constantius at the Battle of Mons Seleucus and committed suicide, Decentius, who was leading reinforcements, hanged himself at Senonae.
