AENEATO´RES (ahenatores, Ammian. 24.4) were those who blew upon wind instruments in the Roman army, namely, the bucinatores, cornicines, tubicines, liticines, and they were so called because all these instruments were made of aes or bronze. (Paul. Diac. p. 20, Müll.; Mommsen, I. R. No. 4232; Suet. Jul. 32.) Aeneatores were also employed in the public games. (Sen. Ep. 84.) A collegium aeneatorum is mentioned in inscriptions. (Orelli, Inscr. No. 4059.)
