Anthemius, 12 April 467 - 11 July 472

Procopius Anthemius was the son-in-law of the emperor Marcian and was selected by the emperor Leo, in Constantinople, to be emperor in the west. He married his daughter to the powerful general Ricimer, but their relationship deteriorated until Ricimer set up a rival emperor, Olybrius. After a long seige Rome fell. Anthemus was found disgused as a beggar and was beheaded.


Click for a larger photo During the reign of Anthemius, dies were sometimes shared between the mints at Rome, Milan and Ravenna. This variant of an extremely rare type minted at Milan appears to have a re-engraved mint mark. The only other known example of this variant is in the Dumbarton Oaks Collection.
