ANTHIA'NUS (ANTHUS?), FURIUS
a Roman jurisconsult, of uncertain date.
He was probably not later than Severus Alexander.
He wrote a work upon the Edict, which in the Florentine Index to the Digest is entitled μέρος ἐδίκτου βιβλία πέντε
, but there are only three extracts made from it in the Digest, and all of these are taken from the first book.
This has led many to hold that the compilers of the Digest possessed only an imperfect copy of his work. (P. I. Besier, Diss. de Furio Anthiano, J. C. ejusque fragmentis,
Lug. Bat. 1803.)
