SERON sĭr’ ŏn (Σήρων). Governor of Coele-Syria and Syrian commander under Antiochus Epiphanes; defeated at Beth-horon by Judas Maccabeus (1 Macc 3:13-23).

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915)

"The commander of the host of Syria" of Antiochus Epiphanes, who was defeated at Beth-horon by Judas in 166 BC (1 Macc 3:13 ff). Not a Greek name; "perhaps it represents the Phoenician Hiram" (Rawlinson, at the place).
