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 Nola (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.
