Amoenus Prudentius the supposed author of an Enchiridion, or manual of the Old and New Tests., called also Dittochceon, or Diptychon, in 196 Latin hexameters. These are divided into forty-nine tetrastichs, descriptive of the principal events and characters of Scripture. Nothing is known of Amcenus except his name. The Enchiridion was first printed as his work in the Fabrician collection (Basle, 1562). Two other short compositions are ascribed to this author: Egqyptius Deum Martini Invocans Tempestatis Periculum Efiugit, a short hexameter fragment: — and In Leontium Episcopum Burdigalensi Ecclesice Redditum, an acrostic ode.
