Xenoetas (/zᵻˈniːtəs/; Ancient Greek: Ξενoιτας; killed in 221 BC) was an Achaean in the service of the Seleucid king Antiochus the Great; he was despatched by his chief minister Hermeias in command of an army against the rebel satrap of Media, Molon, in 221 BC. This unusual distinction seems greatly to have elated him. He conducted himself arrogantly towards his friends, and exhibited no small presumption and rashness in his military operations. He succeeded in crossing the Tigris, but fell into the snare laid for him by Molon, who feigned a retreat, and suddenly returning surprised Xenoetas when the greater part of his forces were sunk in drunken sleep. Xenoetas was killed, and his army cut to pieces.

  • Jenitas (griego: Ξενoιτας; muerto en 221 a. C.) fue un aqueo al servicio del rey seléucida Antíoco III el Grande. En 221 a. C. fue despachado por el primer ministro de este, Hermias, al frente de un ejército contra Molón, el sátrapa rebelde de Media. El que se le encomendase a él la misión parece que le encantó, hasta el punto de tratar con arrogancia a sus amigos y exhibir una no pequeña presuntuosidad y temeridad en sus operaciones militares. Logró cruzar el Tigris, pero cayó en la trampa que le tendió Molón, quien fingió una retirada para de repente caer sobre Jenitas cuando la mayor parte de sus tropas yacían ebrios. Jenitas fue muerto y su ejército destruido. (es)

  • 塞諾塔斯 (希腊语:Ξενoιτας,?-前221年),阿該亞人,為塞琉古帝國國王安條克三世的將軍。 前221年,塞諾塔斯被權臣赫米亞斯派去平定米底總督莫倫的叛亂,這破例的任令讓塞諾塔斯開始得意忘形,並在朋友面前有高傲的舉動,行事也獨斷專行,在軍事上更有輕率指令。塞諾塔斯率領大軍渡過底格里斯河後,被誘入莫倫的詭計,莫倫在佯裝撤退後暗自返回,並突然對塞諾塔斯襲擊,在慌亂中塞諾塔斯的大軍遭到重擊,塞諾塔斯本人也在混亂中喪生。 (zh)
