          Abstract

          Resumen Partiendo de una reevaluación de las fuentes disponibles, se propone una revisión de uno de los momentos clave en el devenir histórico del Imperio romano de Oriente, el golpe de Estado que llevó al poder a Focas en 602. Fue el primer hecho de este tipo que se dio en Constantinopla, creando una situación de inestabilidad que marcaría todo el siglo VII. Este estudio pone el acento en el contexto social y económico en el que se produjo, enclavándolo en las tensiones existentes entre el estamento aristocrático y el resto de la población romana. La extrema crueldad con la que se produjo la deposición de Mauricio, y que también afectó a su familia, sería la prueba de que se trató de una venganza social.

          Abstract Starting from a reassessment of the available sources, a review of one of the key moments in the historical development of the Eastern Roman Empire is proposed, the coup d’état that brought Phocas to power in 602. It was the first event of its kind that occurred in Constantinople, creating a situation of instability that would mark the entire 7th century. This study places the accent on the social and economic context in which it occurred, anchoring it in the existing tensions between the aristocratic establishment and the rest of the Roman population. The extreme cruelty with which Maurice's deposition took place, and which also affected his family, would be proof that it was a social revenge.
