Monta'nus, Votie'nus

was an orator and declaimer in the reign of Tiberius. From his propensity to refine upon thought and diction, he was named the " Ovid" of the rhetorical schools. Seneca the rhetorician describes the eloquence of Montanus (Contr. Proonm. iv., excerpt. 9.5), and cites him (Contr. 18, 20, 24, 25, 27, 28, 29, 31, 32). Montanus was convicted on a charge of majestas, and died an exile in the Balearic islands A. D. 25. (Tac. Ann. 4.42; Euseb. Chron. a. 778.)
