M. Furius L.f. Philus - Monetalis of Res Publica Romana from 119 BC to 119 BC
M. Furius L.f. Philus was one of the moneyers for the year 119 BC. He is not otherwise known, but it probably the son of the Consul for 136 BC, L. Furius Philus.

Gens Furia, originally written Fusia, was one of the most ancient and noble patrician houses at Rome. Its members held the highest offices of the state throughout the period of the Roman Republic. The first of the Furii to attain the consulship was Sextus Furius Medullinus in 488 BC.

The cognomen Philus is probably borrowed from the Greek Φιλος, which approximately means 'friendly'.
