Marcus Aurelius Antoninus Augustus (Marcus Aurelius: 26 April 121 AD — 17 March 180 AD), Roman Emperor from 161 to 180. He ruled with Lucius Verus as co-emperor from 161 until Verus’ death in 169. He was the last of the Five Good Emperors, and is also considered one of the most important Stoic philosophers.

The Meditations of Marcus Aurelius, were written in Greek while he was on campaign between 170 and 180. This is still revered as a literary monument to a philosophy of service and duty, describing how to find and preserve equanimity in the midst of conflict by following nature as a source of guidance and inspiration.
