Marcus Aurelius

Marcus Aurelius (26 April 121 – 17 March 180 AD) was Emperor of Rome from 161 to 180. Marcus Aurelius was the last of the so-called Five Good Emperors. He was a practitioner of Stoicism, and his untitled writing, commonly known as Meditations, is a significant source of the modern understanding of ancient Stoic philosophy, and is considered by many commentators to be one of the greatest works of philosophy.
