It is unlikely that Constantine played any role in the persecution. [54] In his later writings he would attempt to present himself as an opponent of Diocletian's "sanguinary edicts" against the "worshippers of God", [55] but nothing indicates that he opposed it effectively at the time. [56] Although no contemporary Christian challenged Constantine for his inaction during the persecutions, it remained a political liability throughout his life. [57]

Some of the ancient sources detail plots that Galerius made on Constantine's life in the months following Diocletian's abdication. They assert that Galerius assigned Constantine to lead an advance unit in a cavalry charge through a swamp on the middle Danube , made him enter into single combat with a lion, and attempted to kill him in hunts and wars. Constantine always emerged victorious: the lion emerged from the contest in a poorer condition than Constantine; Constantine returned to Nicomedia from the Danube with a Sarmatian captive to drop at Galerius' feet. [61] It is uncertain how much these tales can be trusted. [62]
