Though some accounts claim the Byzantine Emperor died from epilepsy or dysentery, a popular legend states that the Zeno was buried alive.

Apparently, Zeno, after drinking heavily fell unconscious; his wife declared him dead and had him put in a sarcophagus.

Allegedly, Zeno called for help but Adriane refuse to let anyone near the sarcophagus.
