Atilius, the author of a manual on metres (Ars Atilii Fortunatiani) dedicated to a young Roman who had asked for a work on the metres of Horace, which this manual specifically treats near the end. It is drawn from Caesius Bassus, Iuba, and probably from some Greek source. It has been edited by Keil in his Grammatici Latini, vi. 278, and separately (Halle, 1885).


C. Chirius, author of a text-book on rhetoric in the form of a catechism. The chief sources are Quintilian and Cicero. The text of this work, which is in three books, can be found in Halm's Rhetorici Latini Minores, pp. 79 foll.
