As a means of recording the passage of time, the 4th century (per the Julian/Gregorian calendar and anno Domini era) was that century which lasted from 301 to 400.
The early part of the century is shaped by Constantine I, who is notable for moving the imperial capital from Rome to Byzantium (soon renamed Constantinople in honor of it's founder), and his conversion to Christianity - the first Roman Emperor to do so.
The two emperor system originally established by Diocletian in the previous century falls into regular practice, and the east continues to grow in importance as a centre of trade and imperial power, while Rome itself diminishes greatly in importance due to it's location far from potential trouble spots, like central europe and the east.

 Praxiteles and Greek Portraiture in the 4th Century   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
It appears that since the end of the 4th century B. C., naturalistic features were used side by side with anti-naturalistic and ‘classicistic’ ones to convey heterogeneous messages describing social roles and exemplary ideals.
Naturally, this discovery effects the manner in which the portrait group was received by its fourth century audience since the precious materials supposedly used by Leochares are commonly seen as the key piece of evidence for the sculptor’s heroization/deification of Philip and his family.
On the contrary, the evidence of inscribed statue bases suggests that the majority of both the fourth century portrait statues and their fifth century predecessors were private commemorations of family members both living and deceased.

 4th Century B.C.E.
Rome in the 4h Century B.C.E. During the 4th century before the common era, in addition to fighting out its internal battles of the conflict of orders, Rome began a process of military expansion that historians refer to as the unification of Italy.
The century got off to a rocky start when Gaulish tribes swept down through northern Italy, wiping out many Etruscan towns north of Rome, and finally invading Rome and burning the city (with the exception of the Capitol, saved by squawking geese) to the ground.
The century was also marked by the creation of the Appian Road between Rome and Capua, and the development of coinage used in Rome, the Latin rights cities and the allied cities.

 The Women Warriors - the Sarmatians
Sauromatian - Blyumenfeld culture, 6th - 4th century B.C. Smirnov suggests that Sauromatian culture was originated from two kindred cultures - the Timber Grace culture in the Volga River region and Andronovo culture located in the southern Ural steppes.
From the 4th to 2nd centuries B.C., massive nomadic migrations westward from the southern Ural steppes reached the lower Don River and Kuban River regions and absorbed the local Sauromatiansa.
They continued to rule in the North Black Sea steppes until they were invaded by the Huns in the late 4th century A.D. Most of the Alans were absorbed by the Huns while a small number of them fled to the North Caucasus or went west and reached the shores of Gilbraltar.

In a document prepared for discussion at the semi-annual assembly of the Association of Yale Alumni, from October 24 to 26, the President described "an institution that strives for excellence in all its undertakings," while concentrating on demonstrated strengths.
Similarly, because environmental issues are certain to remain among the public's paramount concerns as we enter the 21st century, we expect the contribution of Yale's Institute for Biospheric Studies to assume increasing importance.
Indeed, we will continue the transformation of Yale, begun in the 18th century, from a local to a regional to a national and now to a truly international institution -- international in the composition of its faculty and student body as well as in the objects of its study.
