  Marcus Terentius Varro - LoveToKnow 1911
Varro also studied at Athens, especially under the philosopher Antiochus of Ascalon, whose aim it was to lead back the Academic school from the scepticism of Arcesilaus and Carneades to the tenets of the early Platonists, as he understood them.
Varro was not surpassed in the compass of his writings by any ancient, not even by any one of the later Greek philosophers, to some of whom tradition ascribes a fabulous number of separate works.
Varro's etymologies could be only a priori guesses, but he was well aware of their character, and very clearly states at the outset of the fifth book the hindrances that barred the way to sound knowledge.

 Varro on Pagan Religion
The Romans, he said, identified the sky with Jupiter and Earth with Juno: "These same gods Sky and Earth are Jupiter and Juno..." and he quoted Ennius who said Jupiter is called air by the Greeks, and is identified with wind and cloud, rain, and cold.
Varro added: "Because all come from him and are under him, he addresses him with the words: 'O father and king of the gods and the mortals.' [On the Latin Language, V, 65.]
Varro does not associate the word firmamentum with the sky.

Taylor emphasises Varro was a man in public life; a polymath whose writings range from literature to agriculture; a grammarian whose analysis of language drew from a general interest in culture and scholarship.
Varro's reputation slipped after the sixteenth century, and it is only during the twentieth century that he was again taken seriously.

 Varronian chronology
Varro must have liked this date, because it offers a nice synchronism with the expulsion of the tyrant Hippias from Athens.
Using 387/386 as starting point (instead of Varro's 390), we arrive at 506/505 as the first year of the Roman republic, which is in line with the date mentioned above.
According to Varro's chronology, the Romans bought grain from the tyrant in 411, which is impossible.

 Varro (116-28 B.C.)
Marcus Terentius VARRO, called by Cicero and by St. Augustine "the most learned of the Romans," was of an ancient Sabine clan, which had been of consular rank for two centuries.
Varro was brought up in the old Roman traditions of simple hardihood, and in the best Greek and Latin learning of his age.
Varro was the most voluminous as well as the most learned of the Romans, for he had written, he tells us, 490 books; but the full tale seems to be 620 "books" in 74 works.

Varro (M. Terentius), 116–27 BCE, of Reate, renowned for his vast learning, was an antiquarian, historian, philologist, student of science, agriculturist, and poet.
Of Varro's more than seventy works involving hundreds of volumes we have only his treatise On Agriculture (in Loeb number 283) and part of his monumental achievement De Lingua Latina, On the Latin Language, a work typical of its author's interest not only in antiquarian matters but also in the collection of scientific facts.
Varro's work contains much that is of very great value to the study of the Latin language.

 Marcus Terentius Varro - NovaRoma
Varro's chronology of the Republic, a list of Consuls basically, was so highly regarded that it was inscribed on Augustus' triumphal arch in Rome.
In spite of this, Lendering [1] lists several reasons that Varro should not be followed and the Consul list implied in Livy should be prefered.
Lendering's argument is based on the observation that the removal of certain problematical elements from Varro's chronolgy results in a greater consistancy with other contemporary sources.

He was born in the province of Gallia Narbonensis, the southern part of Gaul with its capital at Narbonne, on the river Atax (now the Aude), for his surname Atacinus indicates his birthplace.
Of Varro's fragments, the epigraph on "The Tombs of the Great" is well-known; whether or not it is truly Varro's it has the terse and skeptical Roman note, the equivalent of a haiku:

He escaped from his difficulty by assuming that Varro, the Stoic philosopher, could not have believed in the Roman divinities but that, under cover of a respectful account, he wanted to expose them to ridicule.
Varro, in his Antiquities, had treated first of "human things" and then only of the "divine things" of Rome.
Nor was the understanding facilitated by the apparently somewhat primitive formulations of the encyclopedist Varro.
