Felix, Fla'vius

an African who flourished towards the close of the fifth century, the author of five short pieces in the Latin Anthology. Of these the first four celebrate the magnificence and utility of the " Thermae Alianae," constructed in the vicinity of Carthage by King Thrasimund, within the space of a single year; the fifth is a whining petition for an ecclesiastical appointment, addressed to Victorianius, the chief secretary of the Vandal monarch. (Anhol. Lat. 3.34-37, 6.86, ed. Bunnann, or n. 291-295, ed. Meyer.)
