A detail of the consular diptych of Sividius

Rufius Achilius Sividius (floruit 483-488) was a Roman politician.

Biography[edit]

He is defined as "quaestor" (maybe quaestor sacri palatii) in the inscription on his seat at the Colosseum.[1] Later he was appointed praefectus urbi of Rome and then patricius. In 488 he was consul posterior with Claudius Iulius Ecclesius Dynamius, both appointed by the court of Odoacer, and praefectus urbi for the second time.

His consular diptych, which records his career, has been preserved.[2]
