Maurus Servius Honoratus was a late 4th-century grammarian, with the contemporary reputation of being the most learned man of his generation in Italy; he was the author of a set of commentaries on the works of Virgil. These works, In tria Virgilii Opera Expositio, comprised the first manuscript to be printed at Florence, by Bernardo Cennini, 1471.

In the Saturnalia of Macrobius, he is made to be one of the interlocutors; allusions in that work and a letter from Symmachus to Servius show that he was a pagan.
