Pliny The Elder

Wikipedia Reference Information

Gaius Plinius Secundus, (23 August 24, 79 AD) better known as Pliny the Elder, was an ancient author, natural philosopher and naval and military commander of some importance who wrote Naturalis Historia. He believed that "true glory consists of doing what deserves to be written, and writing what deserves to be read".

He was the son of a Roman eques by the daughter of the Senator Gaius Caecilius of Novum Comum. He was born at Como, not (as is sometimes supposed) at Verona: it is only as a native of Gallia Transpadana that he calls Catullus of Verona his conterraneus, or fellow-countryman, not his municeps, or fellow-townsman.[1] A statue of Pliny on the facade of the Duomo of Como celebrates him as a native son.
