MINOR LATIN POETS. This anthology covers a period of four and a half centuries, beginning with the work of the mime-writer Publilius Syrus who flourished c. 45 B.C. and ending with the graphic and charming poem of Rutilius Namatianus recording a sea-voyage from Rome to Gaul in A.D. 416. A wide variety of themes gives interest to the poems - hunting in a poem of Grattius, an inquiry into the causes of volcanic activity by the author of Aetna, pastoral poems by Calpurnius Siculus and by Nemesianus, fables by Avianus, a collection of Dicta, moral sayings, as if by the elder Cato, eulogy in Laus Pisonis, and the legend of the Phoenix, a poem of the fourth century.
