John III Rizocopo (also called Joannes Rizocopus) was an Exarch of Ravenna (710).

Shortly before Pope Constantine departed for Constantinoplemarker, he met John in Romemarker. Shortly afterwards John was murdered. The people of Ravennamarker made a certain Giorgius their leader; he soon gained the loyalty of Cerviamarker, Forlìmarker, Forlimpopolimarker, and other cities. The rebellion was eventually suppressed, but it destroyed much of the effective authority of the exarchate, which was only of secondary importance until it was finally overrun in 752.
