A supposed Latin
Christian poet of the third century, under whose name there is
printed in Migne (P.L., V, 261-282) an apologetic poem "Antonii
carmen adversus gentes." Gallandi attributed it to an otherwise
unknown Antonius, an imaginary contemporary of Commodian. But
Muratori, says Dr. Bardenhewer, has shown that the poem belongs to
St. Paulinus of Mola (351- 431). There are two critical editions, by
Oehler (Leipzig, 1847), and by Bursian (Munich, 1880), both of whom
attribute it to Paulinus of Nola.
