Polemius Silvius

A Christian Latin writer of the fifth century A.D., who revised the official calendar, omitting everything that seemed to savour of paganism, and adding historical data and remarks on both grammar and meteorology (ed. by Mommsen, C. I. L. i. p. 335). He also wrote a work entitled Laterculus, given in the Abhandl. der Sächs. Gesellsch d. Wissensch. (1853).
