De rebus bellicis is an anonymous treatise preserved with the *Notitia Dignitatum, recommending to the emperors (probably *Valentinian I and *Valens, 364–75 ce) plans for reforming the imperial financial policy, the currency, provincial administration, the army, and the law. The author also describes proposed military machines and equipment, of which coloured illustrations survive in the MSS.
