Zeno of Rhodes (Greek: Ζήνων; born not later than 220 BC) was an ancient Greek politician and historian (FGrH 523).[1]

Zeno mainly wrote about the history of Rhodes, and was a contemporary of Polybius.[2] Polybius made extensive use of Zeno's historical work, especially on the dealings Rhodes had with Lycia and ancient Rome.[3]
