Prince of Dumnonée Riotham ap Deroch of Dumnonée was a witness where imperator Procopius Anthemius engaged the able and ambitious Visigoth, King Euric, with the assistance of the Bretons under Riothamus, in 469 at Gaul.4,1 Prince of Dumnonée Riotham ap Deroch of Dumnonée sent 12,000 Breton troops to support Emperor Anthemius of the Romans against the invading Visigoths under Euric in 469. However, the Roman forces let him down completely and arrived at the ensuing battle too late to prevent the total annihilation of the Breton army at the hands King Euric of the Visigoths.4,1,5 He received a letter from Sidonius Apollinaris, a Roman Prefect and Bishop of Clermont, written around 470, asking Riothamus for justice for "an obscure and humble person," who has had his slaves enticed away, by a group of armed Bretons, for whom the slave-owner was little match in 470.1 He was the predecessor of Prince of Dumnonée Riwal Deroc ap Riotham of Dumnonée; Prince of Dumnonée.3
