For when going out of the school Zeno of Citium tripped and broke a toe. And after striking the ground with his hand, he cited a line from the Niobe: "I am coming, why do you call me?",[2] and immediately died by holding his own breath. He lived for ninety years free from sickness, but others say that he lived fifty-eight years.[3]

[1] The headword is probably (though not necessarily) extracted from the quotation given.
[2] Adler notes that no such fragment was registered by Nauck. In fact it comes from Timotheus of Miletus (tau 620): fr. 11 Page (PMG).
[3] This whole paragraph draws on Diogenes Laertius 7.28; cf. zeta 79. Most of the changes are inconsequential, though the period of fifty-eight years was (according to Apollonius) that of his headship of the school.
