Longi'nus, Corne'lius

the author of two epigrams in the Greek Anthology, one of which is imitated from the thirteenth epigram of Leonidas of Tarentum (Brunck, Anal. vol. ii. p. 200; Jacobs, Anth. Graec. vol. ii. p. 184). Nothing is known of him, except his name, and even that is doubtful. His first epigram, which, in the Planudean Anthology, bears the name as above given, is entitled in the Vatican MS. Κορνηλίου Λόγγου; the second is entitled in the Planudean Κορνηλίου simply, and is not found in the Vatican. (Jacobs, Anth. Graec. vol. xiii. p. 912.)
