Cornu'tus

a Roman historian, who, according to the account of Suidas (s. v. Κορνοῦτος, where, however, the account of the philosopher L. Annaeus Cornutus and the historian are jumbled together in one article), seems to have been a contemporary of Livy, but very inferior to him in point of merit. His great wealth and the circumstance of his having no children, attracted crowds of admirers around him, but no further particulars are known about him. (G. J. de Martini, Disput. lit. de L. Annaeo Cornuto, p. 8, &c.)
