14891RE: [ANE-2] Re: Late Rome
- Jun 3, 2013Valentinian III was murdered in 455. My guess would be Anicius Olybrius, who
reigned for a few months in 472 and then died of a disease in Rome itself.
His successors all seem to have been exiled from Rome, and were presumably
buried where they died. See http://www.roman-emperors.org/olybrius.htm.

This is really beyond the scope of ANE-2, but I'll bite. I think that it may
have been Valentinian III. A usurper had him murdered while in Rome, and
then the usurper suffered the same fate a few weeks later.
