Cloatius Verus
(94 words)

[German version]

Roman lexicographer with antiquarian interests, perhaps from the early Augustan period. He wrote about the meaning of Greek words (at least four ordinatorum Graecorum libri) and on Greek loan-words in Lat. (apparently also at least four bks. Verba a Graecis tracta). C. is quoted as a source by  Gellius (16,12) and  Macrobius (Sat. 3,6,2; 3,20,1). He is quite certainly the same Cloatius, whom  Pompeius Festus ( Verrius Flaccus) cites as a specialist in sacred language, together with L.  Aelius, probably C.'s source.
