Eutropia (d. after 325), a woman of Syrian origin, was the wife of Emperor Maximian. In the late 3rd century, she married Maximian, though the exact date of this marriage is uncertain. By Maximian, she had two children, a boy, Maxentius (c. 277–287), who was Western Roman Emperor from 306–312 and a girl, Fausta (c. 298), who was wife of Constantine the Great, and mother of six children by him, including the Augusti Constantine II, Constantius II and Constans.
The hairstyle is reminiscent of that of Helena, wife of the Emperor Constantius. This fashion appeared at the end of the 3rd century. On some sarcophi of the first half of the 4th century, very high-ranking women have the same hairstyle. This portrait can be linked to the three other heads of this very rare dynastic group.
