Fortunatia'nus, Ati'lius

a Latin grammarian, author of a treatise (Ars) upon prosody, and the metres of Horace, which will be found in the collection of Putschius. The work is extremely defective and in great confusion, the different parts being in many places jumbled together in defiance of all order or arrangement. Fortunatianus cannot be later than the fifth century, since he is quoted by Cassiodorus, and his diction, as exhibited in an epistle dedicatory addressed to a young senator (p. 2685, ed. Putsch.), is very pure and graceful.
