a rhetorician, who lived after Alexander Numenius but before Julius Rufinianus, probably in the third century after Christ.
He was the author of a small work intitled, de Figuris Sententiarum et Elocutionis
, which is usually printed with Rutilius Lupus.
Rufinianus states, that Aquila took the materials of this work from one of Alexander Numenius on the same subject. [See p. 123a.]
The best edition is by Ruhnken, Lugd. Bat. 1768
, reprinted with additional notes by Frotscher, Lips. 1831.
