Theodosius II, 10 January 402 - 28 July 450 A.D., Struck by Johannes
Issued by Johannes, a usurper in the West, for Theodosius II, the emperor at Constantinople. Johannes was primicerius notariorum (senior civil servant) for Honorius and seized the throne of the Western Roman Empire upon Honorius' death. Johannes issued coins for Theodosius II and attempted to negotiate his position. Theodosius II refused to recognize him, elevated Valentinian III to Augustus, and marched into Italy at the head of a formidable army. Johannes was captured at Ravenna in early summer 425 A.D., tortured, mutilated, exhibited in the circus mounted on an ass and executed.
