Marcus Aurelius

Marcus Aurelius (121–180 CE) was a Roman emperor and Stoic philosopher. Though his reign was threatened by war and disease, he successfully held the empire together and is associated with the Golden Age of Rome. His Meditations has long been considered one of the greatest books of the era and remains a cornerstone of Western philosophical appreciation of Stoicism.
