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.
