Pseudonymous author of a cosmography-cum-travelogue entitled Cosmographia, allegedly edited by Jerome. The work describes ‘Aethicus’’ periplous through the barbarian world, recording his observations and ‘Jerome’s’ censures. The latinity is continental, but traces of Insular literary culture are marked.
