Anicius Olybrius, Roman emperor of the West (July 11 - October 23, 472), was a member of a noble family and a native of Rome.
After the sack of the city by the Vandal king Geiseric in 455, he fled to Constantinople, where in 464 he was made consul, and about the same time married Placidia, daughter of Valentinian III and Eudoxia.
In 472 Olybrius was sent to Italy by the emperor Leo I to assist the emperor Anthemius against his son-in-law Ricimer, but, having entered into negotiations with the latter, was himself proclaimed emperor against his will, and on the murder of his rival ascended the throne unopposed.

 <i>DIR</p> Olybrius
Olybrius probably was a scion of the family of Anicius Hermogenianus Olybrius, consul in 395, whose wife was named Anicia Juliana; both, therefore, were members of the powerful Anician family of Italy.
Circa 454 Olybrius married Placidia, the younger daughter of Valentinian III and Licinia Eudoxia, and the sister of Eudocia.
Olybrius' name came up again in an imperial context in 472, when he was sent by Leo to attempt to arbitrate in the civil war between the western emperor Anthemius and the barbarian general Ricimer.

 The Decline And Fall Of The Roman Empire XXXVI
The king of the Vandals supported, by threats and solicitations, the fair pretensions of his Roman ally, and assigned, as one of the motives of the war, the refusal of the senate and people to acknowledge their lawful prince, and the unworthy preference which they had given to a stranger.
The friendship of the public enemy might render Olybrius still more unpopular to the Italians; but when Ricimer meditated the ruin of the emperor Anthemius, he tempted, with the offer of a diadem the candidate who could justify his rebellion by an illustrious name and a royal alliance.
Yet Olybrius yielded to the importunities of his friends, perhaps of his wife; rashly plunged into the dangers and calamities of a civil war; and, with the secret connivance of the emperor Leo, accepted the Italian purple, which was bestowed, and resumed, at the capricious will of a barbarian.

The final collapse of the Empire in the West was marked by increasingly ineffectual puppet Emperors dominated by their Germanic masters of the soldiers.
His position as "Shadow Emperor" was in turn held by his nephew Gundobad and Orestes; Odoacer simply overthrew Orestes's puppet Emperor, Romulus Augustus, in 476 and ruled Italy as nominal subordinate of the Emperor-in-exile, Julius Nepos, who continued to reign in Dalmatia until 480.
Both Ricimer and Olybrius (who was never acknowledged and was considered a usurper by the Eastern Emperor) died in 472, and were replaced by the Burgundian prince Gundobad and his puppet Emperor Glycerius, a former court functionary.

This man must be the herald of the Antioch governor Olybrius, who is the man on a fast galloping horse in the centre of the scene.
Like any English medieval king or magnate, Olybrius is out hunting, and his greyhound, a pale shape in front of the tree (pink seems to have been the original colour), pursuing a fleeing hare, is said in the leaflet available in the church to be the earliest depiction of the breed in Britain¹.
This figure, in the center of the scene, is probably not the governor Olybrius, whose rank would not seem to merit a crown², and it may be intended for the Emperor Diocletian, in whose reign, according to her Legend, Margaret and those she converted were beheaded.
