Gaius Plinius Caecilius Secundus, better known as Pliny the Younger was a lawyer, author, and magistrate of Ancient Rome. Born of the equestrian rank, the lower of the two Roman aristocratic orders, Pliny would ascend to the higher rank, the senatorial order, by being elected Quaestor in his late twenties. The nephew of Pliny the Elder, Pliny the Younger would have correspondence with numerous important Roman figures throughout his lifetime, including the Emperor Trajan, of which the latter portion of this work focuses on. This representative selection of Pliny the Younger’s letters serves as an important first hand document of Roman life and politics during the first century AD.
