Brill's New Pauly: "A horticultural and pharmaceutical writer who was admired for completing Virgil (Serv. Georg. 4,148). He lived in the 3rd cent. AD (SHA Alex. 37,9) ....The work (De hortis ?) was together with the Roman agronomists part of the Florentine Cod. Marcianus but had already been removed from this collection before the codex was completely lost in the 16th cent.... Parts are preserved in Palladius' books of the months under the headings De hortis and De pomis
the Neapolitan Fr. De arboribus pomiferis (pom.) of the 6th cent. (on quince, peach, almond, chestnut) as well as reworkings and excerpts, especially the Medicinae ex oleribus et pomis (med.), contain more material. Important sources for G. were Pliny, Celsus and Columella. The curae boum ex corpore Gargili Martialis are now considered forgeries on linguistic grounds...."
