In AD 493, the Ostrogoth Theoderic was sent by the emperor Zeno to remove the then-ruler of Italy, the Skiric Odoacer (who had had dismissed the last Roman emperor of the West), and to then serve as Zeno’s imperial representative there. While the Ostrogoths were technically subordinates of the Byzantine emperor, for which reason they struck coinage in his name, they were, in reality, the de facto rulers of the Italian peninsula. (CNG 275, 259 note).
