From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Lucius Furius Philus was a consul of ancient Rome in 136 BC. He was a member of the Scipionic circle, and particularly close to Scipio Aemilianus. As consul he was involved with the foedus Mancinum, and offered Mancinus to the Numantines. He is mentioned by Macrobius as the author of a work mentioning two sacral formulae to use against besieged cities, while Cicero, in de Republica, praises the style of Furius' speeches.
