De Figūris. An anonymous didactic poem on rhetorical figures discovered in a MS. at Paris, and published by Quicherat, and later by Schneidewin (Göttingen, 1841). It consists of 185 or 186 hexameters, and treats of the figures of speech in such a way that each figure has three lines of the text. The peculiarities of its diction lead one to place its date during the later Empire. See Teuffel, Hist. Roman Lit., Eng. trans., 451, 1.


De Ponderĭbus et Mensūris. A poem found in some of the MSS. of Priscian, but undoubtedly earlier than his time, and probably of the fourth or fifth century A.D. It has 208 hexameters, the best edition of which is that of F. Hultsch in his Script. Metrolog. Rom. (1866).


De Morĭbus. See Cato, Dionysius.
