Brill's New Pauly: "Licentius from Thagaste, son of Romanianus, a patron of Augustinus, probably accompanied him to Carthage and Rome. He is involved in the debate in the latter's dialogue Contra Academicos. A poem in 154 hexameters is extant in which L. asks Augustine for sending his work De musica, since he expects to get help for reading Varro's Disciplinae. After AD 395 there are no longer any records about him....." Gruber, Joachim (Munich). "Licentius." Brill's New Pauly. Antiquity volumes edited by: Hubert Cancik and
