A name applied to collectors of various sorts—e. g. to the servants of the publicani or farmers of the taxes, who collected the revenues for them (Pro Rab. Post. 11.30); also to those who collected the money from the purchasers of things sold at a public auction (id. Pro Cluent. 64.180). The father of Horace was a coactor, but there are no means of determining to which class he belonged ( Sat. i. 6, 86; Vit. Hor.).
