Zipoetes I - Basileus of Kingdom of Bithynia from 297 BC to 278 BC
Zipoetes I was the second independent ruler of Bithynia, and the first to style himself as King. He succeeded his father Bas on the throne in about 326 BC and reigned for forty-eight years, waging successful wars with Lysimachus and Antiochus, the son of Seleucus I Nicator.

He founded a city which was called Zipoetium (after himself) at the foot of Mount Lypedron; the exact locations of both the city and the mountain are unknown.

He lived to around the age of seventy-six, and left behind him four children, the eldest of whom, Nicomedes, succeeded him.
