Charisius, Flavius Sosipăter

A writer on Latin grammar, who flourished towards the end of the fourth century A.D. His Ars Grammatica, a work in five books, imperfectly preserved, is a compilation, made, without much intelligence, from the works of older scholars. Its value is derived from the numerous quotations it preserves from the older Latin literature. Our text is derived chiefly from the Codex Neopolitanus of the seventh or eighth century. The best critical text is that of H. Keil (in his Grammatici Latini), vol. i. (Leipzig, 1857).
