THEOPHANES

The Roman era historian Theophanes (100 B.C.) was born in Mytilini.

He accompanied Pompei in his military operations in Asia Minor and wrote an account of them. Pompei, in return of these services, accorded him the rights of a Roman Citizen. It is said by Strabo that such was Pompei's trust in Theophane's abilities that he never did anything without taking his advice.

Theophanes made use of Pompei's favor for the benefit of his native town, Mytilini, which Pompei, on his return from Asia in 62 B.C., declared to be free and adorned lavishly. The Mytilinians honored Theophanes by striking coins with the inscription "Theophanes god of Mytileneans"
