(82 words)

[German version]

(possibly a Roman name) was a magister militum of Odoacer AD 489-493; by September 489 he had crossed over to Theoderic (Theodericus [3]) the Great, but returned to Odoacer's camp (Anon. Vales. 11,51-52). From 490 he stayed with the Rugian king Fredericus [2] in northern Italy; in 493 a battle broke out between them, in which T. was defeated and killed (Chron. Min. 1).
