Nonius, Marcellus

, was a grammarian and peripatetic philosopher of Tivoli, by whom we have a treatise “De Proprietate Sermonis, sive da varia significatione | verborum.” He is supposed to have flourished in. the fourth century. His work is valuable only because he introduces several fragments of ancient writers not to be found elsewhere. The best edition is that by Mercer, printed at Paris, 1614, 8vo, with notes. The first editions, of 1471, and 1476, and 1480, are of great rarity, but all in the Spencer collection. 1
