Elpi'dius (*)Elpi/dios), or HELPIDIUS, one of the physicians of Theodoric the Great, king of the Ostrogoths, A. D. 493-526, whom he attended in his last illness. (Procop de Bello Goth. lib. i. p. 167, ed. Höschel.) He was a Christian, and in deacon's orders, and probably a native of Milan. There is extant a letter to him from king Theodoric (ap. Cassiod. Vrariar. 4.24), and four from Ennodius (Epist. vii 7, 8.8, 9.14, 21; ap. Sirmondi Opera, vol. i.) [W.A

the future in regulating the respective rights and duties of the subjugated Roman provincials and their conquerors. In the West Gothic kingdom, which was established in Spain and a part of Gaul, a collection of Roman laws was formed during the reign of Alaric II. (A. D. 484-507), partly from the Theodosian, Gregorian, and Herimogenian Codes, and partly from the works of jurists. This collection is known in modern times by the name Breviariumn Aniani [ANIANUS], or Breviarium Alaricianum. In A. D. 493 the Ostrogoths became masters of Italy, and in A. D. 500 Theodoric the Great published for the use of the whole population of the Ostrogothic kingdom a set of rules based on the Roman, not the Gothic law. About the year A. D. 517 the Lex Romana Burgundiorum was compiled for the use of the Burgundian Romans. The Burgundian conquerors, who, towards the middle of the fifth century, established a kingdom upon the banks of the Rhone, had already a similar code of their own, called Gundobada.
Odoa'cer (*)Odo/akros), King of Italy, from A. D. 476-493. He was the son of one Edeco, who was undoubtedly the same Edecon who was minister of Attila and his ambassador at Constantinople. Odoacer had a brother, Onulf, who likewise became conspicuous. It appears that Odoacer was by origin a Scyrrus, and that after the dispersion of the Scyrri by the East Goths, he was chosen the chief of the remnants of that broken tribe, but he is also called a Rugian, an Herulian, and a king of the Turcilingi, perhaps because he was in after years at the head of an army composed of those nations. IIis father Edecon having been slain in the battle with the East Goths, where the power of the Scyrri was broken (about 463), Odoacer, now at the head of the reduced tribe, led the life of a robber in Pannonia and Noricum, but finally entered the imperial guard at Rome and rose to eminence. In 475 Orestes had his son Romulus Augustulus chosen emperor of Rome. The countless bands of barbarians of all natio
