Publius Cornelius Tacitus
(c. 54/? – c. 120)

One of the most important ancient Roman historians. Tacitus's Annals and Histories originally covered the history of the Roman Empire from the death of Augustus (AD 14) to the death of Domitian (AD 96), although substantial portions have not survived. Aside from these major works, he also wrote a biography of his father-in-law (Agricola) and an ethnographic study of Germany (Germania). The Dialogue on Orators, an imaginary conversation on the subject of rhetoric, is attributed to him, but is written in a markedly different style.
