Description Provenance Inscription Credit
Description From a series of relief portrait medallions of the early kings of Italy (Walters 27.483-88, for which see 27.485). Perctarit (died 688) and Godepert (died 661) were sons of Aripert I (king of the Lombards 653-661). The borothers first ruled jointly, Perctarit, a Catholic, ruled from Milan and Godepert, an Arian, ruled from Pavia. The latter was soon assassinated and Perctarit ruled alone, though he was assassinated himself in 688.
