Illos

   Powerful Isaurian patrikios and magister militum (qq.v.) who helped Zeno (q.v.) recover his throne. The queen-mother Verina (q.v.) attempted to assassinate Illos, but she failed. Illos demanded that Verina be imprisoned, and Zeno complied. The empress Adriadne's (q.v.) own attempts to assassinate him also failed. These events prompted Illos to revolt in 484, gaining support from pagans and Orthodox (q.v.) alike, who were hostile to Zeno's pro-Monophysite (q.v.) policy. Defeated in battle, he held out for four years in an Isaurian fortress before being captured in 488 and beheaded.
