Rutilius Claudius Namatianus, normally referred to by his cognomen, was a Roman poet who flourished during the 5th century. He wrote, most notably, an elegiac poem about a voyage from Rome to Gaul in 416 titled De Reditu Suo, and it is regarded as one of the most important works of the time. Very little is known about his life, and much of the book has been lost.
