Bust of Seneca the Younger

All cruelty springs from weakness.

Seneca (B.C.E. c. 4-65 C.E.)
Roman Philosopher, Dramatist, and Statesman

Lucius Annaeus Seneca (often known simply as Seneca /ˈsɛnɪkə/; c. 4 BC – AD 65) was a Roman Stoic philosopherstatesmandramatist, and in one work humorist, of the Silver Age of Latin literature.

He was tutor and later advisor to emperor Nero. While he was forced to commit suicide for alleged complicity in the Pisonian conspiracy to assassinate Nero, he may have been innocent.[1][2] His father was Seneca the Elder and his elder brother was Lucius Junius Gallio Annaeanus, called Gallio in the Bible.

Though Seneca was born about the same time as historical Jesus of Nazareth, his family hailed from the other end of the Mediterranean Sea, the Iberian Peninsula.
