Zenobius in Harpers Dictionary of Classical Antiquities (1898)

(Ζηνόβιος). A Greek Sophist of Antioch, who lived at Rome as teacher of rhetoric in the first half of the second century B.C., and, availing himself of the works of earlier writers, made a collection of proverbs, still extant in an abridged form, arranged alphabetically and divided into hundreds. In all there are 552, the last division being incomplete. They are printed by Schott in his Paroemiae Hellenicae (Antwerp, 1612). See Jungblut, De Zenobio (1882).
