Tauri'nus, T. Cae'sius

a Roman poet, who probably lived in the fourth century of our era.


He is only known as the author of an extant poem in twenty-three hexameter lines, entitled Votum Fortunae. It is usually entitled Votum Fortunae Praenestinae ; but although it is extant at present at Praeneste in the Palazzo Baronale, it refers to the temple of Fortuna in the Roman forum; and accordingly Meyer has correctly dropt the addition of Praenestinae in the title of the poem.


It is printed in the Latin Anthology (i. Ep. 80, ed. Burmann and Ep. 622, ed. Meyer), and by Wernsdorf in his Poetae Latini Minores (vol. iv. p. 309, &c.).
