*Pa/mfilos), literary.

1. A disciple of Plato, who is only remembered by the circumstance that Epicurus, when a young man, heard him at Samos. Epicurus used to speak of him with great contempt, partly, according to Cicero, that he might not be thought to owe anything to his instruction; for it was the great boast of Epicurus, that he was the sole author of his own philosophy. (Diog. Laert 10.14; Suid. s. v. Ἐπίκουρος ; Cic. de Nat. Deor. 1.26.)
