A contemporary of Ovid (cf. Ovid, ex Pont. iv. 16, 34) and the author of an extant poem on the chase (Cynegetica), of which 536 hexameters are extant and five fragments. From an allusion in the fortieth line, Grattius is without good reason regarded by some as a native of Falerii, and hence is often styled Faliscus. The poem has been edited with a commentary by Stern (Halle, 1832), and revised by Haupt (Leipzig, 1838). The best text is that of Bährens (Leipzig, 1879). See Cynegetica.
