LIBIUS SEVERUS (under Ricimer) 461-465 AD. PB Tesserae (10mm; 0.76 gm).  Monogram of Ricimer / Dog left?. Interesting Tesserae

In November of 461, Ricimer proclaimed Libius Severus emperor at Ravenna, and other than the fact that he was a native of Lucania, nothing else is known. He was little more than a puppet, as evidenced by some of his nummi such as this one with Ricimer’s monogram as the reverse type. Severus died in 465, presumably of natural causes, which was quite a remarkable achievement during the final thirty years of the Western Roman empire.
