Biography Aulus Gellius (Aulus Gellius)
(2. BC)
He studied in Rome and in Athens, which began to work Attic Nights (Noctes Atticae), representing a mixture of heterogeneous information in the twenty books. Attic Nights survived almost completely failed to reach a book VIII and the last section of the book XX. Gellius scrupulously, though haphazardly quotes from earlier writers on issues of language and literature, law and customs, science and philosophy. Especially great his interest in the Latin language. Gellius often resort to dialogue form, to convey the views of contemporary authors. Language of the essay, as well as the interests of the author, are responsible for the characteristic time of his love of all archaic.
