Quintus Terentius Scaurus was a Latin grammarian who flourished during the reign of Hadrian (Aulus Gellius xi.15).

He was the author of an ars grammatica and commentaries on Horace, Virgil's Aeneid and perhaps Plautus. Under his name, two fragments are extant—the longer from his work on orthography (De orthographia), the shorter (chiefly on the use of prepositions) from another grammatical work. They have both been published by Heinrich Keil in Scriptores de orthographia, the 7th volume of his Grammatici Latini (Teubner, 1880); the De orthographia has appeared in a new edition prepared by Federico Biddau (Weidmann, 2008).
