a rich freedman from Sardinia, was the uncle of M. Tigellius Hermogenes, of whom Horace speaks (Sat. 1.2). Phanmeas died in B. C. 49; and in B. C. 45 Cicero undertook to plead some cause relating to the property of Phameas against the young Octavii, the sons of Cneius. Cicero did this in order to please the dictator Caesar, who patronised the musician Tigellius; but He did not fulfil his promise, for reasons which he assigned to Tigellius, but which appeared unsatisfactory to the latter. (Cic. Att. 9.9.4, 13.6, ad Fam. 9.16, 7.24 ad Att. 13.49; Weichert, Poet. Lat. p. 304 Drumann's Rom. vol. vi. p. 318.)
