Aulus Gellius Aulus Gellius (c. 125 – after 180 AD) was a Latin author and grammarian, who was probably born and certainly brought up in Rome. He was educated in Athens, after which he returned to Rome, where he held a judicial office. He is famous for his "Attic Nights", a commonplace book, or compilation of notes on grammar, philosophy, history, antiquarianism, and other subjects, preserving fragments of the works of many authors who might otherwise be unknown today.
Aulus Gellius The "editio princeps" appeared at Rome in 1469. The earliest critical edition is that of Jakob Gronovius (Leyden, 1706). A later edition is that of M. Hertz (Berlin, 1883–85; there is also a smaller edition by the same author, Berlin, 1886), revised by C. Hosius, 1903, with bibliography. A volume of selections, with notes and vocabulary, was published by Nall (London, 1888). There is an English translation by W. Beloe (London, 1795), and a French translation (1896). A more recent English translation is by John Carew Rolfe (1927) for the Loeb Classical Library.
Aulus Gellius He returned to Rome, where he held a judicial office. He was appointed by the praetor to act as an umpire in civil causes, and much of the time which he would gladly have devoted to literary pursuits was consequently occupied by judicial duties. The precise date of his birth, as of his death, is unknown; but from the names of his teachers and companions, he must have lived under Hadrian, Antoninus Pius, and Marcus Aurelius.
Gellius Maximus Gellius Maximus (died 219) was a Roman usurper against Emperor Elagabalus.
Statius Gellius Statius Gellius (fl. 305 BC) was a Samnite general who fought against the Romans, in the Second Samnite War. He was defeated and taken prisoner in 305 BC, at the Battle of Bovianum.
Gnaeus Gellius Gnaeus Gellius (2nd century BC) was the author of a history of Rome from the earliest epoch, extending at least to the year 145 BC, as indicated by Censorinus. He described the Rape of the Sabines in his second book; the reign of Titus Tatius in the third; and in the 33rd, dealing with the Second Punic War, the death of Postumius Albinus and the purpose to which his skull was applied by the Boii. Choricius quotes from the 97th book, though the numerical designation may not be reliable.
Gnaeus Gellius A considerable space seems to have been devoted to the legends connected with the origin of Rome. If these books were in general equal in length to the similar divisions in Livy, the compilation of Gellius must have been exceedingly voluminous, and the details more ample than those contained in Livy, by whom, as well as by Plutarch, he seems to have been altogether neglected, although occasionally cited by Dionysius. He was apparently both an accurate chronologer and a diligent investigator of ancient usages.
Aulus Gellius His only known work, the "Attic Nights" (), takes its name from having been begun during the long nights of a winter which he spent in Attica. He afterwards continued it in Rome. It is compiled out of an "Adversaria", or commonplace book, in which he had jotted down everything of unusual interest that he heard in conversation or read in books, and it comprises notes on grammar, geometry, philosophy, history and many other subjects. One story is the fable of Androcles, which is often included in compilations of Aesop's fables, but was not originally from that source.
Gellius Maximus Gellius Maximus was the son of a physician and a member of the senate. He served as an officer in Legio IV "Scythica" in Syria and took advantage of the turmoil during the reign of Elagabalus to proclaim himself emperor. The rebellion was soon extinguished, and Gellius Maximus was executed.
Aulus Gellius The only source for the life of Aulus Gellius is the details recorded in his writings. He was of good family and connections, possibly of African origin, but he was probably born and certainly brought up in Rome. He traveled much, especially in Greece, and resided for a considerable period in Athens. He studied rhetoric under Titus Castricius and Sulpicius Apollinaris; philosophy under and Peregrinus Proteus; and enjoyed also the friendship and instruction of Favorinus, Herodes Atticus, and Fronto.
