or PHOBE'NUS, GEO'RGIUS (Γεώργιος Φυρβηνός), a Greek jurist of uncertain date. A MS. which Ducange has cited (Glossur. Med. et Iufim. Graecitat. Index Auctor. col. 26), describes him as Δικαιόφυλαξ Θεσσαλονίκης, "Judge at Thessalonica." He wrote two very short dissertations :--1. Περὶ ὑποβόλου, De Donatione super Nuptias ; and 2. Περὶ ἀποτυχίας, De Casso. He wrote also Scholia on the Basilica, of which possibly the above dissertations may have formed part. (Allatius, De Georgiis, 100.48; Fabric. Bibl. Graec. vol. x. p. 721, and vol. xii. pp. 483, 564, ed. vet.)
