Publilius Syrus (circa 85 - 43 B.C.) was a Syrian slave who came to Rome, and was later freed. He became a famous mime (before mimes were required to be silent), and is known for a collection of wise-sounding sayings. He also won a mime contest against Gaius Lucilius.

Since his sayings were not collected until about 100 years after his death, it's not certain that he was indeed the originator of all of them.
