HUBNER, EMIL (1834-1901), German classical scholar, son of the historical painter Julius Hiibner (1806-1882), was born at Düsseldorf on the 7th of July 1834. After studying at Berlin and Bonn, he travelled extensively with a view to antiquarian and epigraphical researches. The results of these travels were embodied in several important works: Inscriptiones Hispaniae Lalinae (1869, supplement 1892), I.H. Christianae (1871, supplement 1900); Inscriptiones Britanniae Latinae (1873), I.E. Christianae (1876); La Arqueologia de Espana (1888); Monumenta linguae Hibericae (1893). Hiibner was also the author of two books of the greatest utility to the classical student:
Grundriss zu Vorlesungen ilber die romische Liter alurgeschichte (4th ed. 1878, edited, with large additions, by J. E. B. Mayor as Bibliographical Clue to Latin Literature, 1875), and Bibliographic der dassischen Altertumswissenschaft (2nd ed., 1889); mention may also be made of Romische Epigraphik (2nd ed., 1892); Exempla Scripturae Epigraphicae Latinae (1885); and Romische Herrschafl in Westeuropa (1890). In 1870 Hiibner was appointed professor of Classical Philology in the university of Berlin, where he died on the 21st of February 1901.
