Tullius Menophilos

Legatus Augusti pro praetore Moesiae inferioris.

Known through epigraphic (in Nicopolis) and numismatic sources. He dedicated a statue to the emperor Gordianus III, and his name appears on coins in Marcianopolis with the portrait of Gordianus III on the obverse, but not with those of Tranquillina. Therefor his term in office seems to have terminated before the Imperial marriage in AD 241. Additionally at some point before AD 238 he is recorded as consul suffectus.

Lit.: B. E. Thomasson, Laterculi Praesidum I (1984) p. 144 no. 131 (c. AD 239-240); PIR² T 387; W. Leschhorn, Lexikon der Aufschriften auf griechischen Münzen II (2009) p. 682 s. v. Menophilos (c. AD 238-244).
