ZEPHIRIN, Antoine (say-fee-reng), Spanish pilot, born in Franche-Comtd about 1475; died in Nombre de Dies, Isthmus of Panama, about 1530. He followed the sea, and in early life went to Santo Domingo. Afterward he entered the service of Pedrarias Davila, and was chief pilot in Pascual de Andogoya's expedition in 1522, which discovered San Juan river and brought the first news of Peru. In the following year he sailed as chief pilot in Francisco de Becerra's expedition, wMeh explored the Pacific coast. In 1525 he conducted Francisco Pizarro to Peru, and afterward he made expeditions to Guatemala and along the coast of the Isthmus of Darien, of which he prepared the first chart. Nothing is known of the remainder of his life, except that he died in Nombre de Dies, where he owned extensive lands that had been granted to him by Pedrarias Pavila.
