Hilaria'nus, Meci'lius or MECHI'LIUS or MECIILIA'NUS. The Codex Theodosianus contains frequent notice of this magistrate, who appears to have been Corrector Lucaniae et Bruttiorum under Constantine the Great, A. D. 316 (12. tit. 1. s. 3), proconsul of Africa in the same reign, A. D. 324 (12. tit. 1. s. 9), consul with Pacatianus, A. D. 332, and praefectus praetorio, or, as Gothofredus thinks, praefectus urbi, sc. Romae, under the sons of Constantine, A. D. 339 (6. tit. 4. s. 3, 4, 7). An Hilarian appears, but without any note of his office, in a law of A. D. 341. This is probably Mecilius Hilarian; but the Hilarianus or Hilarius (if indeed he be one person) who appears in the laws of the time of Gratian and Valentinian II., and of Honorius, as praefectus urbi, A. D. 383, and as praefectus praetorio, A. D. 396, must have been a different person. Perhaps the last is the Hilarius mentioned by Symmachus. (Symmachus, Epist. lib. 2.80, 3.38, 42, ed.

earliest among the Christian poets, flourished under Constantine the Great, was a native of Spain, the descendant of an illustrious family, and a presbyter of the church. These particulars, for which we are indebted chiefly to St. Jerome, comprise the whole of our knowledge with regard to the personal history of this writer. Works Juvencus owes his reputation to the first of the two following works:-- 1. Historiae Evangelicae Libri IV. Historiae Evangelicae Libri IV., published about A. D. 332, a life of Christ in hexameter verse, compiled from the four evangelists. The narrative of St. Matthew is taken as the groundwork, the additional facts supplied by the three others are interwoven in their proper places, the whole thus forming a complete harmony of the Gospels. The liberal praises bestowed upon Juvencus by divines and scholars, from St. Jerome down to Petrarch, must be understood to belong rather to the substance of the piece than to the form under which the materials are p
Pacatia'nus a Roman emperor, known to us only from coins, a specimen of which is annexed. From the number of coins of this emperor found in Austria, Eckhel thinks that the brief reign of Pacatianus was probably in Pannonia or Moesia. The full name of Pacatianus was TI. CL. MAR. PACATINUS. Mar. is variously interpreted, some making it Marius, some Marcius, and others Marinus. Eckhel adopts the last, and assigns the coins to the times of Philippus and Decius (Eckhel, vol. vii. p. 333). There was a Pacatianus, consul A. D. 332, in the reign of Constantine (Fasti).
