Anton, Konrad Gottlob professor of Oriental languages at Wittenberg, was born in 1745, and died July 4,1814. He published, Rationem Prophetias Messianas Interpretandi Certissimam Nostreque Etati Accommodatissimam Exponit (Dessau, 1786):-Abhandlung von der alten hebrdischen Tonkunst, a treatise published in Paulus's Neues Repertorinum, iii, 36 sq., in which he regards the accents as musical notes, according to which the melody of Hebrew hymns is to be decided. This idea he further developed in his musical exposition of the Song of Songs, Salomonis Carmen Melicum (Viteb. and Lips. i800 ). Besides, he wrote De Verisimillima Librum Jone Interpretandi Ratione (1794), and Nova Loci 1 Samuel 6:19 Interpretandi Ratio (1780).
