African Period of Latinity
The period in the history of Latin literature from about 115-180 A.D. was so called because
of the fact that many of the prominent writers of this period were natives of Africa, e. g.
M. Cornelius Fronto, Sex. Iulius Africanus, L. Apuleius, and the
Christian writer Q. Septimius Florens Tertullianus. See Sermo Plebeius
