Sulpicius Apollināris

A contemporary of A. Gellius, and a learned grammarian. There are two poems in the Latin Anthology purporting to be written by Sulpicius of Carthage, whom some identify with the above-named Sulpicius Apollinaris. One of these poems consists of seventy-two lines, giving the argument of the twelve books of Vergil's Aeneid, six lines being devoted to each book. Sulpicius also wrote the metrical arguments prefixed to the plays of Plautus (?) and Terence. (See Periocha.) His arguments to the Aeneid are printed in the Poët. Lat. Min. of Bährens, iv. 169. See Beck, De Sulpicio Apollinari (Groningen, 1884).
