1. C. Cornelius, a Roman artist in silver, whose name occurs in an inscription found at Narbonne, FABER ARGENT. (Gruter, p. dcxxxix. 5). This inscription is one of several proofs that this branch of the arts was diligently cultivated in Gaul under the early em-perors. In other inscriptions we find mention made of Vasclarii Argentarii, specimens of whose work are furnished by beautiful silver vases, which have been found in Gaul. (R. Rochette, Lettre à M. Schorn, p. 385, 2nd ed.)
