Anser

A poet of the Augustan Age, and long considered one of the enemies of Vergil; but of this there is no good evidence, for the line in Verg. Ecl. ix. 35 is only traditionally referred to him. He was a writer of erotic poetry. See Unger, De Ansere Poeta (Neubrandenb. 1858), and Teuffel, vol. i. p. 453 (Eng. trans. 1891).
