Macer, Aemi'lius


If the Macer named by Quinctilian in his sixth book be the same with either of the above, we must conclude that one of them published a collection of Tetrasticha, which were turned aside from their true meaning, and pieced together by Ovid, so as to form an invective on good-for-nothing poets, "Adjuvant urbanitatem et versus commode positi, seu toti, ut sunt (quod adeo facile est, ut Ovidius ex tetrastichon Macri carmine librum in malos poetas composuerit)," &c.
