Secundus, Ju'lius

a Roman orator and a friend of Quintilian, is one of the speakers in the Dialogus de Oratoribus, usually ascribed to Tacitus. Quintilian praises his elegantia, and says that if he had lived longer, he would have obtained with posterity the reputation of an illustrious orator. (Auctor, Dial. de Orat. 2, &c.; Quint. Inst. 10.1.120, 12.10.11.)
