Zipoetes II - Basileus of Kingdom of Bithynia from 278 BC to 276 BC
Zipoetes II was a ruler of Bithynia from 278 BC to 276 BC. He was a son of Zipoetes I and a younger brother to Nicomedes I.

When Nicomedes tried to kill his three brothers, Zipoetes II was the only one to escape. He then raised an insurrection against Nicomedes and succeeded in maintaining himself, for some time, in the independent sovereignty of a considerable part of Bithynia.

It was in order to vanquish Zipoetes II, that Nicomedes successfully called in the Gauls of Leonnorius and Lutarius, future founders of Galatia.
