The Prefecture was established after the death of Constantine the Great in 337 when the empire was split up among his sons and Constantius II received the rule of the East with a praetorian prefect as his chief aide. The part allotted to Constantius encompassed four (later five) dioceses each in turn comprising several provinces. The authority of the prefecture stretched from the Eastern Balkans grouped into the Diocese of Thrace to Asia Minor divided into the dioceses of Asiana and Pontus and the Middle East with the dioceses of Orient and Egypt.

The praetorian prefecture of the East or of the Orient (Latin: praefectura praetorio Orientis Greek: ἐπαρχότης/ὑπαρχία τῶν πραιτωρίων τῆς ἀνατολῆς) was one of four large praetorian prefectures into which the Late Roman Empire was divided. As it comprised the larger part of the Eastern Roman Empire and its seat was at Constantinople the praetorian prefect was the second most powerful man in the East after the Emperor in essence serving as his first minister.
