Goths and Romans 332–489

P. J. Heather

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the solution to the Gothic problem that had plagued Zeno for years. It highlights the two conflicts that dominated 484 to 489, which were between Zeno and Illus and Zeno and Theoderic the Amal. The agreement of 487/8 involved the Thracian Goths moving to Italy, thus solving the Gothic problem once and for all.

Keywords:   solution, Gothic problem, Zeno, conflicts, Illus, Theoderic the Amal, agreement of 487/8, Thracian Goths
