This chapter discusses Zeno, who was the father of Emperor Leo's grandson and heir, Leo II. It looks at his relations with the Amal-led Goths and the Thracian Goths, and his appointment as MVM praesentalis for life. The chapter looks at Zeno's attempts to come up with a solution to the Gothic problem. However, by the end of 479, he had only succeeded in forging an alliance with the Amal-led Goths.

Keywords:   Zeno, relations, Amal-led Goths, Thracian Goths, MVM praesentalis, Gothic problem, alliance
