Aulus Gellius

Aulus Gellius, or Agellius, a Latinised Greek, who flourished at Rome as a grammarian and lawyer under Hadrian and his two successors. After a voyage in Greece he wrote his Noctes Atticae (Attic nights), a sort of common-place book, extremely valuable because it contains fragments of lost authors. His style is peculiar, being full of both archaisms and new-fangled expressions, but his judgment is generally sound. Of the twenty books the eighth is unfortunately missing.
