Zephon Angel

Zephon (Hebrew: pn, Tsfn; sometimes Zepho) was a son of Eliphaz (Esau’s eldest son). His brothers, according to Genesis, were Omar, Teman, Gatam, Kenaz, and Amalek. Genesis 36:11 makes reference to him. According to the tradition cited in Jossipon, he was apprehended and imprisoned by Joseph’s armed troops and later served as a commander for Kittim. According to one account, he became a Latin king in Latium, the land along the Tiber river where Rome would later be constructed. By his subjects, King Zepho son of Eliphaz was known as Janus Saturnus. Zephon (also spelled Tzephon) is one of the angels associated with the sixth sephira, Tiphereth, in Isaac ha-Cohen of Soria’s Kabbalistic “Treatise on the Left Emanation.” Zephon, also spelled Zepho, was an angel dispatched by the archangel Gabriel together with Ithuriel to ascertain the position of Satan following his Fall in John Milton’s Paradise Lost. Zephon was also associated with Jebel Aqra in Canaanite religion, the home of the Elohim from whom Yam was exiled. Zephon is a cherub and the guardian prince of Paradise, according to John Milton.
