A'LCIMUS (AVI'TUS) ALE'THIUS


Works


Seven poems in the Latin Anthology

the writer of seven short poems in the Latin anthology, whom Wernsdorf has shewn (Poet. Lat. Min. vol. vi. p. 26, &c.) to be the same person as Alcimus, the rhetorician in Aquitania, in Gaul, who is spoken of in terms of high praise by Sidonius Apollinaris, (Epist. 8.11, 5.10,) and Ausonius. (Profess. Bardigal. ii.) His date is determined by Hieronymus in his Chronicon, who says that Alcimus and Delphidins taught in Aquitania in A. D. 360. His poems are superior to most of his time.

Editions

They are printed by Meier, in his " Anthologia Latina," ep. 254-260, and by Wernsdorf, vol. vi. p. 194, &c.
