), a Rhodian, who was appointed together with Eudamus to command the Rhodian fleet in the war against Antiochus, after the defeat and death of Pausistratus, B. C. 190. [PAUSISTRATUS.] He was a man of a prudent and cautious character, and in the conference held by the Roman general, L. Aemilius Regillus, at Elaea, inclined to the side of peace. Shortly after he was despatched, together with Eudalmus, to watch for and encounter the fleet which Hannibal was about to bring from Phoenicia to the support of Antiochus.
The two fleets met off Side in Pamphylia, and the Rhodians were victorious; but dissensions between Pamphilidas and his colleague in the command prevented the victory from being as decisive as it might otherwise have proved.
After this action Pamphilidas was detached with a small squadron to carry on naval operations on the coast of Syria; this is the last mention that occurs of his name. (Plb. 21.5
