), king of the Vandals in Africa (A. D. 477-484) son of Genseric.
He succeeded his father A. D. 477, and married Eudocia, daughter of the emperor Valentinian, in whose court he had been a hostage. His reign was chiefly marked by his savage persecution of the Catholics--rendered famous by the alleged miracle of the confession of Tipasa; and he died of a loathsome disease, A. D. 484. (Procop.
