Ῥοδοφῶν), a Rhodian, was one of those who, when hostilities broke out between Perseus and the Romans, in B. C. 171, strove successfully to retain their countrymen in their alliance with Rome, and continued throughout the war to adhere firmly to the Roman cause. In B. C. 167, when the anger of the senate against the Rhodians had been with difficulty appeased by Astymedes and his fellow-ambassadors [comp. PHILOPHRON and POLYARATUS], Rhodophon and Theaetetus were appointed to convey to Rome the present of a golden crown. (Polyb. xxvii 6, 28.2, 30.5; comp. Liv. 45.20, &c.)
