Zeno (Greek: Ζήνων, c. 425 - 9 April 491) Was a Eastern Roman emperor from 29 August 474 - 9 January 475 (First Reign) and August 476 - 9 April 491 (Second Reign). Zeno had witnessed the fall of the Western Roman Empire along with the accession of Odoacer into italy.
His reign was pretty much plauged with domestic revolts and riots and later leading for his deposal and accession of Basilicus into the throne but nevertheless he was able to retake back the Eastern imperial throne and he was also credited for the stabilization of the Eastern Empire.
