Manos is a Greek family which was one of minor Phanariot families of Constantinople.

Manos comes from Kastoria, Macedonia, and descend from the founder of the family, Emmanuel (Manos) Philippou (1610 - 1699). His grandson Manolaki (born circa 1655) settled, the first of the family, in Constantinople becoming a powerful fur trader and later Megas logothetes of the Ecumenical Patriarchate. Much of the family later settled in the independent Greek Kingdom. Further prominence for the family ensued from the controversial marriage of Aspasia Manos to King Alexander I of Greece.
