Auspicius of Toul was a bishop of Toul and poet of the later fifth century.

He is known for iambic verse based on stress (rather than quantity, as in the classical Latin prosody); this was an innovation of his time[1]. A verse letter of his from around 470 survives, praising Arbogast, count of Trier[2].
