Bellator a presbyter, and a friend of Cassiodorus, at whose request he wrote Commentaries on Ruth, appended by Cassiodorus to Origen's Exposition, to complete a comment on the Octateuch. He also wrote Commentaries on Tobit, Esther, Judith, Maccabees, and Wisdom, all of which have perished. He translated two books of Origen's Homilies on Esdras; and Huet regards him as the author of the extant Latin version of some of the works of that father. See Cassiodorus, De Inst. Div. c. i, 540, c. v, 542, etc.; Cave, Historia Literaria, i, 525; Sigebert, De Ill. Eccles. Script. c. 89.
