LUCIAN MULLER (1836-1898), German scholar, was born at Merseburg in Prussian Saxony on the 17th of March 1836. Having studied at Berlin and Halle, he resided for five years in Holland, where he collected the materials for his Geschichteder klassischen Philologie in den Niederlanden (1869). Unable to obtain a university appointment in Germany, he accepted (1870) the professorship of Latin at the Imperial Historico-Philological Institute in St Petersburg. There he died on the 24th of April 1898. Muller was a disciple of the methods of Bentley and Lachmann. His De re metrica poetarum latinotum (1861; 2nd ed., 1894) represents a landmark in the investigation of the metrical system of the Roman poets (the dramatists excepted), and his Metrik der Griechen and Romer ( 2nd ed., 1885) is an excellent treatise in a small compass (Eng. trans. by S. B. Platner, Boston, Mass., 1892). His other chief publications were: C. Lucili saturarum reliquiae (1872), including the fragments of Accius and Sueius; Leben and Werke des Gaius Lucilius (1876; suppt. Luciliana, 1884); text of Horace (1869; 3rd ed., 1897) ; Quintus Horatius Flaccus, eine litterarhistorische Biographie (188o) ; Quintus Ennius (1884), an introduction to the study of Roman poetry; Q. Enni carminum reliquiae (1884); Livi Andronici et Cn. Naevi fabularum reliquiae (1885) ; Der saturnische Vers and seine Denkmdler (1885); Noni Marcelli compendiosa doctrines (1888); De Pacuvii fabulis (1889); De Accii fabulis disputatio (189o).
