V'nius

1. T. Vinius was proscribed by the triumvirs B. C. 43, and owed his life to his wife Tanusia, who concealed him in a chest at the house of his freedman Philopoemen, and gave out that he was dead. She afterwards obtained his pardon from Octavian, who raised Philopoemen to the equestrian rank for his fidelity to his former master. (D. C. 47.7; Suet. Oct. 27; Appian, App. BC 4.44, where Vinius is erroneously called Junius, and Philopoemen is also erroneously called Philemon.) [PHILOPOEMEN, p. 321a.]
