tetrarch of Abilene (Luke 3:1), on the eastern slope of Anti-Lebanon, near the city of Damascus.
From Eretria, which was flourishing at that time, came lysanias; he was the only one from Eubœa.
This younger lysanias may have been a son of the latter, and identical with, or the father of, the Claudian lysanias.
He also gave him the tetrarchy of lysanias, 27 and changed his iron chain for a golden one of equal weight.
Zenodorus was already known as having succeeded the first lysanias in his government.
