Palladius, Rutilius Taurus Aemilianus

PALLADIUS, RUTILIUS TAURUS AEMILIANUS, a Roman author of the 4lh century A.D. He wrote a poem on agriculture (De re ruslica) in fourteen books, the material being derived from Columella and other earlier writers. The work is conveniently arranged, but far inferior in every other respect to that of Columella.

There is a modern German edition by Schmitt (Leipzig, i8g8).
