2. An officer in the service of king Philippus. He was one of the governors of Athamania, being stationed at Theium. When Athamania revolted, he held out against the insurgents for a few days, but was eventually compelled to retire. When Philippus invaded Athamania, Zenon was sent to take possession of Ethopia. He found it necessary, however, to retire to a stronger position when attacked by the Athamanians. The greater part of his forces were killed; he himself with a few others escaped to the king. (Liv. 38.1, &c.)
