Pharsanzes - King of the Bosporan Kingdom from 253 AD to 254 AD
Tiberius Julius Pharsanzes was a prince and Roman Client King of the Bosporan Kingdom. He was the first-born son to the Bosporan King Rhescuporis V and his mother was an unnamed woman. He was of Greek, Iranian and Roman ancestry. His younger brothers were princes Synges and Teiranes.

Between 253–254, Pharsanzes co-ruled with his father Rhescuporis V. His royal title on coins is in Greek: ΒΑΣΙΛΕΩΣ ΦΑΡΣΑΝΖΟΥ or of King Pharsanzes. During his brief rule, he was a contemporary to the rule of the Roman Emperor Gallienus. There was a possibility that Pharsanzes could have some connections with the Goths. He died in 254 and was succeeded as a co-ruler by his second brother Synges in 258.
