  Aelius Donatus - LoveToKnow 1911
AELIUS DONATUS, Roman grammarian and teacher of rhetoric, flourished in the middle of the 4th century A.D. The only fact known regarding his life is that he was the tutor of St Jerome.
On the introduction of printing editions of the little book were multiplied to an enormous extent.
Aelius Donatus is to be distinguished from Tiberius Claudius Donatus, the author of a commentary (Inter pretationes) on the Aeneid (of far less value than that of Servius), who lived about fifty years later.

 PONS AELIVS
When the emperor Hadrian visited Britain in AD122 and the need for a continuous northern frontier wall was first envisioned, the eastern terminus was to be marked by a fort at the first crossing point of the River Tyne, at Newcastle.
The praetorium and principia of the Hadrianic fort at Pons Aelius were recently found in the grounds of the castle adjacent to the Castle Keep, the castle being built directly upon the site of the former Roman encampment.
At the beginning of the fifth century the Notitia Dignitatum records that Cohors I Cornoviorum was stationed at Pons Aelius; they were raised from among the Cornovii tribe who inhabited Cheshire and Shropshire, and were the only native British unit known to have been stationed on the wall.

Aelius's particular charge is to investigate the unsolved mystery of the drowning death in the Nile of Hadrian's favorite, young Antinous." "Soon his duty turns twofold: the hunt for Antinous's grave, supposed to conceal proof of a conspiracy against Rome, and the murder of a wealthy army supplier and his servant.
While the trials against Christians (later known as the Great Persecution) inflame Egypt, Aelius gathers clues in odd places until his road leads inescapably to Rome." "Joined in his search by a blind retired soldier who is well experienced in counterespionage, Aelius scavenges for evidence in a world capital in decline.
Researching a biography of the deified Hadrian, Aelius is curious about the drowning death of Antinous, the emperor's favored male consort.

If, on the other hand, his subjects display only the sins and vices of mankind, with no admixture of virtue, the sovereign is exalted by the great chasm separating him from the common lot, preserving his virtue and dignity inviolate even in the most unfortunate times.
The Lives of Lampridius we know well; the life of Lampridius the man is obscure, and some writers of the present age insist (brazenly, though not without reason of a kind) that Aelius Lampridius is a literary phantom, without substance or shadow.
Such arrogance should be generously, but firmly, imputed to their ignorance, not to their malice or envy.
