a friend of Ovid, who addressed to him one of his extant epistles from Pontus (4.12). Tuticanus had made a free translation, into Latin verse of the Odyssey, or at least of a portion of it, to which Ovid refers in the lines : “Dignam Maeoniis Phaeacida condere chartis
Cum te Pierides perdocuere tuae.

Ovid likewise alludes to this poem in another passage ("Et qui Maeoniam Phaeacida vertit," ex Pont. 4.16. 27), but without naming the author. (Wernsdorf, Poet. Lat. Min. vol. iv. pp. 584, 585.)
