Statue of the Roman poet Ausonius (c. 310–c. 395 CE) in the village of Neumagen-Dhron in Germany. Decimius Magnus Ausonius was from Burdigala (modern Bordeaux in France) and was tutor to the future emperor Gratian, who afterwards bestowed the consulship on him. In 367 CE, Ausonius was required to accompany the Emperor Valentinian on his German campaigns. His best-known poem is Mosella, a celebration of the beauties of the river Moselle.
