Aelia Zenonis, Augusta, 475 - late August 476 A.D.

Aelia Zenonis, probably of Isaurian origin, was the wife of Basiliscus, usurper of the Eastern throne. After only 20 months, Zeno returned to Constantinople to retake his throne without a fight by promising not to shed Basiliscus' blood. After a year of exile in Cappadocia, Zeno executed Basiliscus and his family without bloodshed. They were starved to death. Mediterranean 476 AD
