^ 427. Nonius MarceUus, a native of Tivoli, lived probably in the 4th century, but
is placed by some at the close of the 2d. We have from him a work styled Compen-
diosa doctrina de proprietate sermonum, in 19 chapters, written for the use of his son.
They are valuable on account of the subjects treated, and the fragments of ancient
wrhers which they contain.

1 . He is .surnamed in some manuscripts Peripateticus Tihuriensis. The critics have


passed very different opinions respecting the merits of this work^. " It is certain, how-
ever," Si^ys SchblP "that no ancient grammarian is more rich in his citations from
previous writers."

<§> 428. Sextus Pomponms Festus, who lived probably in the middle of the 4fh cen-
tury, left a work entitled De verhonim signijicahone, in 20 books. It is, properly
speaking, an abridgment of a larger grammatical treatise of Verrius Flaccus (cf. ^ 418.)
From this abridgment another was made by Pauliis Diaconus or Winifrid, in the 8th
century, which is the only one that has come down to us.

1. The words are arransed alphabetically, and each book of the atiridjment contains a letter.
"The abridiriTient of Festtis is a work very useful in arquiring a knowledge of the Latin tnngtie,
but it has experienced an unhappy lot. It existed entire uniil the 8th century, when Paul Wini-
frid formed from it a meager compilation, which from that time supplanted in the libraries the
work of Festus. The latter is indeed lost, excepting thai in the I6ih century a single imperfect
manuscript was found in Illyria. This manuscript, commencing with tlie letter .V, fell iiiio the
hands of Aldus Manutius, who incorporated it with the compilation of Winifrid, and made of
them one work ; which he printed, in 1513, at the end of the Cornucopm of PeroUo."

^ 429. Mlius Donatus, a celebrated philologer of Rome, in the 4th century, is also
known as the instructor of Jerome. We have from him several grammatical essays,
which have served as the basis, in some respects, for modern authors on Latin Gram-
mar. They treat partly of the elements of language and of prosody, and partly of
syntax and diction. He left also a valuable commentary on five comedies of Terence,
in which he not only illustrates the meaning of the words, but comments upon the
plan and the dramatic character of the pieces.

1. The two principal grammatical treatises are styled Editio prima de Uteris, sylla-
hisqw-, pedihus, et tofiis, and Editio secunda de oclo pnrtibus oralionis ; they are some-
times termed Ars Donati. They form, when united, something hke a complete
grammar, being the earliest systematic Latin grammar known to have existed. —
I'here is another treatise by him, De barharismo, solacismo, schematibvs, et tropis.

A brief life and description of Donatus which Peter Daniel copied from a manuscript in the Royal Library of Paris is given by
Fahricius ; it represents him as of a mean and disgusting personal appearance ; but it is an absurd document of no authori'y. — Fa-

lo be the production not o{ ^lius, but of Tiberius Claudius Donatus, who lived perhaps in the
same period.

<5> 430. Macrobius Ambrosius Aurelius Theodosius, of uncertain origin, lived pro-
bably in the first part of the 5th century. His commentary on Cicero's Dream of Sci-
rtio, in 2 books, contains much that is useful in reference to philosophy and to mytho-
logy. His seven books of Saturnalia or Table-talks, are specially valuable in philo-
logy, although they consist chiefly of compilations from other authors, Greek and
Latin. Much is taken from Gellius, and the 7th book is almost entirely from Plutarch.
Of another work by him, strictly grammatical, on the difference and affinity of the
Greek a?id Latin verb, we have an extract made by an unknown Johannes, perhaps
the celebrated Scottish John Erigena.

L Some have supposed that Macrobius was born in Greece ; in the manuscripts he
is styled Vir consular is et illustris. Some have also thought him to have been a
Christian. — The full titles of the three known works are given as follows : Commenta-
riorum in Somnium Sriplonis a Cicerone descriptum Lib. II.; — Saturnaliorum convi-
riorum Lib. VIL; — De differentiis et societatibiis Grceci et Latini verbi. — The second,
the Saturiialia, is in the form of dialogue, purporting to be the transcript of conversa-
tions held at table during the festival of the Saturnalia (cf. P. III. ^ 230); it includes
discussions of historical and mythological topics, explanations of various passages in
ancient authors, and remarks on Roman manners and customs.

§ 431 t. Flavius Sosipater Charisius, who flourished probably at the commencement


of the 5th century, was a native of Campania, a Christian, and a professed grammarian
at Rome. He compiled lor the use of his son a work entitled Institutiones Gramma-
ticce, in 5 books : it is still extant, but the 1st & 5th books are in a defective state.

bably of the 5th century; he is quoted by Priscian. He left a grammatical work, in
3 books, De oratione, de partibus oralionis, et de vario rhetorum genere. Nothing is
known respecting him ; but his Greek name may perhaps be considered as indicating
that he was a slave.

§ 433. Priscianus, a Latin grammarian of Constantinople, w^as a native of Ceesarea,
or according to others a native of Rome educated at Caesarea. He flourished probably
in the first half of the Cih century. His Grammatical Commentaries, in 18 books
(ConuneJifariornm grammaticorum libri xviii.), form the most extensive ancient work we
have on the grammar of the Latin language ; and are considered as holding a classical
authority on that sutiject. The first 16 books, treating of the several parts of speech,
are commonly called the Larger Friscian, and the 2 last, which treat of syntax, are
called the Smaller Priscian.

1. The Commentaries are addressed, or dedicated, to Julian, not the Apostate (cf.
^ 127), but a man of consular and patrician rank.

Fahricivs meDlions a Hamburs manuscript containin? this work {codex vetuttus membranaceus), which professes to have been
written at Constantinople during the consulship of Olibrius ; the copyist, one Theodonis, calls himself a disciple of Priscian. The
consulship of Olibrius, which is given for the date of this manuscript, was A. D. 526. — See Fabricixu, Bibl. Lat. iii. 398, Emati't
ei.—Schm, Litt. Rom. iii. 329.

2. We h.ive other grammatical works from Priscian ; among which are treatises
with the following titles, De accent Ihits, Be versihus comicis. Be declinatione nominum
Be praexercitamentis rhetoricce. — Priscian was also probably the author of three poems,
which have sometimes been ascribed to Rhemnius Fannius; viz. one entitled Perie-
sesis e Bionysio, a version or rather imitation of the Greek of Dionysius (cf. % 217), in
1087 verses ; another entitled Be Siderihus, in 200 verses, little else than a dry nomen-
clature ; and the poem Be ponderibus et me7istiris, of v.'hich we have only 162 verses.

^ 434*. Isidon/s I]ispal(7isis, commonly called Isidore of Seville, was a native of
Carthago Nova (Carthagena), and held the office of bishop of Seville. He died A. D.
636. His principal work is usually cited by the title Origines; sometimes by the title
Etymologiee; it consists of 20 books, and contains a great variety of matter, being
indeed a sort of Encyclopaedia. The last 10 books are chiefly occupied with the ety-
mology and explanation of words.

1. fie wrote also several treatises on grammatical subjects; a chronicle, or history
of the world, from the Creation to A. D. 615 ; and brief histories of the Goths and
Visigoths. Besides the works already' named, on account of which he is mentioned
in this place, he likewise composed various treatises on sacred and ecclesiastical

^ 435. A large number of Letters or Epistles is presented to the student in Roman
Literature ; and in this department the language is justly said to be rich. We find
two classes of letters ; those which were actually sent to individuals in the real inter-
course of life, and those which were merely put into the form of letters on account of
a preference in the authors to express in such a form, what they originally designed
tor publication. The earliest letters in Latin, of which we have any notice, were cf
the former class, and belong to the third period of our division, extending from the
civil war. B. C. 88, to the death of Augustus, A. D. 14.


Tlie principal and most important are those of Cicero, particularly ncticed in a sub-
sequent section (cf. § 440). But in the collection of Cicero's letters are preserved
letters from many others, one or more from about 30 different writers. Among these
writers are the following; Quintus, the brother of Cicero; Marc Antony, the trium
vir; Julius Caesar; Brutus and Cassius, his murderers; jMarcus Ccelius Rufus;
Cncius Pompey ; Marcellus, for whom Cicero pronounced the celebrated oration;
and Munaiius Plancus, who obtained a disgraceful celebrity at the court of Cleopatra
in Egypt.

§ 436. Julius Caesar was the author of many letters. Pliny (^Hist. N. vii. 25) relates
that he was able to dictate to his amanuenses as many as four and sometimes even
seven letters at a time. A considerable number of Caesar's letters were published.
Suetonius {Vil. Ccbs. 56) speaks of three collections; one of letters to the senate,
another of letters to Cicero, and a third of letters to various friends. But none remain
to us excepting the few included among those of Cicero. One book in the collection
of Cicero's letters is composed of letters from M. Ccelius, who, at the age of 16, had
been committed to the care of Cicero, in order to be trained for the bu^siness of the
Forum (cf. P. IV. ^ 125). His licentiousness exposed him to a prosecution, 'and
Cicero uttered an oration in his defence. He obtained much reputation as an orator,
and rose to the office of proBtor. His letters were written from Rome to Cicero while
the latter was governor of Cilicia.

§ 437. In the period from Augustus to the Antonines, we meet with two important
authors in this species of composition, Pliny the younger and Seneca. Most of Pliny's
letters (cf. § 441)w^ere probably not designed for publication, but written merely for
the persons to whom they are addressed ; a few of them perhaps were composed with
reference to their being ultimately made public. The letters of Seneca (cf. <$> 442)
were evidently composed on purpose for publication, and it is even a matter of doubt
whether they were ever sent to the persons to whom they are addressed. — A third
writer belongs to the close of the same period, Cornelius Fronto (cf. § 443), whose
letters seem to have had place in an actual correspondence.

'5 438. In the last period included in our glance, Symmachus (cf. § 444) of the 4th
century, is the only pagan writer who is worthy of notice as an author of letters. Si-
donius, who was later still (cf. § 445), was a Christian.

other Christian acthors composed epistles in the Ijtin tankage. We ought, perhaps, to mention particularly, as belonging to
this late period, Paulinus, bishop of Nnla, and Camodorus, who held high civil ofBces under Theodoric, A. D. 490, and after-
waids retired to a monastery founded by himself in Calabria.— Cf. £ahr, Gesch. Rom. Lit p. 601.— The SupplemeiU lo Ihe samej
p. 51, 107, \29.— Clarke, as cited § 293, vol. ii. p. 1 16, 328.

^ 439. In treating of Greek literature we spoke of romancers and epis^olizers in con-
nection. In the Roman literature we find little that can very properly be ranked
under the denomination of romance. There are, however, two works which have
very much of the character of romance, although they are at the same time of such a
turn and aim as may justify the placing of their authors where we shall notice them,
in the list of philosophers. The works we mean are the Satyricon of Petronius Arbi-
ter (cf. § 472). and the Asinus aureus or Golden Ass of Apuleius (cf § 471) ; and the
Ifitteris considered as belonging properly to the variety of fiction or romance termed
tlie Milesian tale (cf. § 150).

•^ 440. ]\r. Tullius Cicero, whose history has been noticed in a preceding section
(<5i 404), left a large number of letters. They consist of 1. sixteen books partly of
epistles from him to relatives and friends, ad familiares or ad diversos. and partly of
epistles from them to him (cf § 435) ; 2. sixteen books to Atticus, ad T. Pompon. At-
ticum, replete with instructive anecdotes from the history of the times, yet often ob-
scure in expression; 3. three books to his brother, o^f Quint um f rot rem. chieflv im-
partmg advice and counsel respecting his conduct in the Quaestorship with which he
was intrusted ; 4. ofie book to Brutus, of which the genuineness has been brought
into doubt.

1. It has been supposed that after Cicero's death, his freedman Turo collected the
letters, and formed them into three or four collections, as above designated. The
first collection comprises 421 letters ; the second 396 ; and the third 29. This arrange-
ment has been disapproved by many, as breaking up the chronological order of the
letters, and rendering some passages more difficult to be understood. In the edition
of Schiltz (cited below) the letters of these three parts are placed in the order of

2. The 4th collection consists of letters of Cicero to Brutus and of Brutus to Cicero.
It is ascertained that a collection of such letters, extending to not less than eight books,
existed for many years after Cicero's death. Yet from about the 5th century, all trace
of it is lost until the 14th century, when some of the letters now extant came into the
possession of Petrarch. In 1470, at Rome, 18 of these letters were published, being
all that were then known. — Several others were ai'terwards discovered in Gernianr

and are now included in the collection. Erasmus suspected the whole to be the com-
position of some sophist, but they were universally received as genuine remains of the
ancient collection, until they were attacked in the famous letter oi Tunslall to iMiddle-
ton. Since that there has been doubt ; several of the German critics decidedly reject

Middlcton, iiJ his Life of Cicero, had used the letters in question as genuine ; Tunslall in a Latin epistle to him (£p. ad MiddU-
inn. Camb. 1741. 8.) alleges that they are wholly spurious.— .WiddWOTi vindicated their genuineness in a Dissertalion prefixed to

§ 441. C. PVmhts Secundus, already mentioned as an orator {% 405), is the author of
the greatest part of a collection of letters, consisting of 10 books. Many of them ap-
pear'^not to have been elicited by any actual occasion, but to have been written only
with a view to their publication and addressed to his friends. Although they have not
so much of naturalness and simplicity as the letters of Cicero, yet they possess great
merit in respect both of matter and style ; the noblest teelings are expressed in elegant
languao-e. and they mav be considered as furnishing a model in epistolary writing'
One of the most remarkable books is the tenth, which includes also letters of Trajan

to PlinV. , , . rr,.

1. The first nine books contain about 250 letters ; the tenth contains 122. They
furnish much valuable information respecting the age to which they belong. Among
the more interesting letters are the two which refer to the life and death of his uncle,
tlie elder Plinv (iii. 5, vi. 16) ; two others in which he describes his villas^ (ii. 17, v. 6) ;
and that in whioh he addresses the Emperor Trajan respecting the Christians (x. 97),
to which TertuUian alludes in his Apology (cap. 2), and which has justly attracted
much attention^.
