Procopius Anthemius (Constantinople, c. 420 – Rome, 11 July 472) was a Western Roman Emperor from 12 April 467 until his death. Perhaps the last able emperor, Anthemius attempted to solve the two primary military challenges facing the remains of the Western Roman Empire: the resurgent Visigoths, under Euric, whose domain straddled the Pyrenees; and the unvanquished Vandals, under Geiseric, in undisputed control of North Africa. He failed, killed by his own general of german descent, Ricimer, who contested him the power.
