A Greek sophist, who taught rhetoric at Rome during the reign of Hadrian (A.D. 117-138). He was the author of a collection of proverbs in three books, still extant in an abridged form, compiled, according to Suidas, from Didymus of Alexandria and "The Tarrhaean" (Lucillus of Tarrha in Crete). Zenobius is also said to have been the author of a Greek translation of Sallust and of a birthday poem (y€vcOAcarcov) on Hadrian.

Editions by T. Gaisford (1836) and E. L. Leutsch-F. W. Schneidewin (1839), and in B. E. Miller, Melanges de litterature grecque (1868); see also W. Christ, Griechische Litteraturgeschichte (1898).
