Auguri'nus, Se'ntius

a poet in the time of the younger Pliny, who wrote short poems, such as epigrams, idylls, &c., which he called poematia, and which were in the style of Catullus and Calvus. He was an intimate friend of the younger Pliny, whom he praised in his verses ; and Pliny in return represented Augurinus as one of the first of poets. One of his poems in praise of Pliny is preserved in a letter of the latter. (Plin. Ep. 4.27, 9.8.)
