Servius Marius

(or Maurus) Honorātus. A Roman grammarian, who lived towards the end of the fourth century A.D. He taught grammar and rhetoric at Rome, and composed, besides a commentary on the grammar of Donatus and some short treatises on grammar, a commentary on Vergil remarkable for its copious historical, mythological, and antiquarian notes, most of which are probably derived from the writings of much earlier scholars. It has not, however, reached us in its original form. Servius appears as one of the characters in the Saturnalia of Macrobius (q.v.). The commentary on Vergil is edited by Thilo and Hagen (Leipzig, 1878).
