In chapter 13.21 of Noctes Atticae Aulus Gellius vividly describes a verbal dispute between the grammarian Valerius Probus and an anonymous interlocutor who is questioning him about a morphological matter. Valerius Probus is presented as an impatient and intolerant magister, as well as a promoter of an asystematic grammar, free from the excessive conditioning of regulae. Aulus Gellius agrees with this approach and makes Valerius Probus the mouthpiece for his own conception of the language, which he considers a balance of the different canons of Latinitas.

Abstract

In chapter 13.21 of Noctes Atticae Aulus Gellius vividly describes a verbal dispute between the grammarian Valerius Probus and an anonymous interlocutor who is questioning him about a morphological matter. Valerius Probus is presented as an impatient and intolerant magister, as well as a promoter of an asystematic grammar, free from the excessive conditioning of regulae. Aulus Gellius agrees with this approach and makes Valerius Probus the mouthpiece for his own conception of the language, which he considers a balance of the different canons of Latinitas.
