Libius Severus coins

461 - 465 After the execution of Majorian in 461 the general Ricimer placed Severus as emperor. Only emperor in name, Ricimer remained the true power in the quickly deteriorating Roman Empire. Little else is known about this emperor other than the fact that he died in office of natural causes, in itself a remarkable feat for this turbulent period.
