Se'ron (Σήρων; in Syr. and one Gr. MS. ῞Ηρων; Vulg. Seron), a general of Antiochus Epiphanes, in chief command of the Syrian army (1 Macc. 3:13, ὁ ἄρχων τῆς δυνάμεως Συρίας), who was defeated at Beth-horon by Judas Maccabaeus (B.C. 166), as in the day when Joshua pursued the five kings "in the going down of Bethhoron" (1 Macc. 3:24; Jos 10:11). According to Josephus, he was the governor of Coele-Syria and fell in the battle (Ant. 12, 7,1), nor is there any reason to suppose that his statements are mere deductions from the language of 1 Macc.
