    Pliny the Younger (c.61 AD - c.112 AD)
    Pliny the younger   Pliny the Younger was a Roman official and writer, famous for his letters which are an important source for Roman history. Gaius Plinius Caecilius Secundus, known as Pliny the Younger, was the son of a landowner from Comum in northern Italy. After his father's death Pliny was brought up by his uncle, Pliny the Elder, the author of a famous encyclopaedia on natural history. In 79 AD, he witnessed the eruption of Vesuvius which killed his uncle. He later described this in a letter to his friend the historian Tacitus. Pliny travelled to Rome for the later stages of his education, and later enjoyed a successful career in law and government. He entered the senate in the late 80s AD and as consul in 100 AD, he delivered his Panegyricus in honour of the emperor Trajan. His revised and expanded version of this speech is one of the very few surviving Latin speeches that are not by Cicero. In around 110 AD, Pliny was appointed governor of the Roman province of Bithynia-Pontusis (north west Asia Minor).

      Born in Comum Italy , the son of a landowner named Lucius Caecilius and his wife Plinia, Pliny the Younger was also a nephew of Pliny the Elder Pliny's father died at an early age; as a result, Pliny probably lived with his mother. His guardian is known to have been Lucius Verginius Rufus , famed for quelling a revolt against Nero . After being first tutored at home, Pliny later travelled to Rome where he furthered his education and was taught rhetoric by the great teacher and author Quintilian and Nicetes Sacerdos of Smyrna. It was at this time that Pliny became closer to his uncle Pliny the Elder and when the elder Pliny died during the Vesuvian eruption, the terms of the will passed the estate to the younger Pliny. In the same document he was adopted by his uncle, a common practice in Roman culture.

The Roman senator Pliny the Younger is one of the few people from Antiquity who is more to us than just a name. We possess a long inscription which mentions his entire career, one or two of his houses have been discovered, and -more importantly- we can still read many of his letters. They are often very entertaining: he tells a ghost story, gives accounts of lawsuits, guides us through his houses, describes the friendship of a boy and a dolphin, informs us about the persecution of Christians, tells about the eruption of the Vesuvius. But we can also read his correspondence with the emperor Trajan . With the senator Cicero and the father of the church Augustine, Pliny is the best-known of all Romans. In this article, we will first describe his career, and then focus on his governorship of Bithynia-Pontus (109-111), where he was some sort of interim-manager who had to settle a troubled
