6. C. Fannius
, tribune of the people in B. C. 59, when C. Julius (Caesar and Bibulus were consuls. Fannius allowed himself to be made use of by Bibulus in opposing the lex agraria
of J. Caesar.
He belonged to the party of Pompey, and in B. C. 49 he went as praetor to Sicily.
The fall of Pompey in the year after seems to have brought about the fall of Fannius also. (Cic. pro Seat.
