Extract

Anthemius, western Roman emperor (ce 467–72), son-in-law of Marcian, eastern emperor, was imposed on *Ricimer by the eastern court. Though praised by *Sidonius Apollinaris in a panegyric, he lacked support in the west and the defeat of the imperial fleet by the *Vandals in 468 undermined his position.
