C. Licinius Macer (died 66), who has been called the last of the annalists, wrote a voluminous work, which, although he paid great attention to the study of his authorities, was too rhetorical, and exaggerated the achievements of his own family.
GAIUS LICINIUS MACER CALVUS (82-47 B.C.), Roman poet and orator, was the son of the annalist Licinius Macer.
Aemilius Macer must be distinguished from the Macer called Iliacus in the Ovidian catalogue of poets, the author of an epic poem on the events preceding the opening of the Iliad.
P. 541; for Macer Iliacus see Ovid, Ex Ponto, ii.
