      Valentinian 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.
