Little is known about the author, even his full name is uncertain, and his poem has received scant academic interest.The latest firm date of the poem is the disastrous defeat of Varus legions by the German tribes in 9 CE. The writing shows the author to be well read and knowledge of his subject, but the work is not referred to by any subsequent writer, suggesting that it was never widely disseminated.A manuscript was rediscovered by Poggio Bracciolini in 1416 or 1417, and editions of the poem were produced by Scaliger and Bentley, however, the definitive text of the poem is this immensely erudite series by the distinguished Latin scholar and poet A.

E. Housman (1859-1936). Between 1903-1930 Housman produced five volumes, one for each book of the poem, each of which critically analysed and described the text of the poem.
