Marcus Tullius Cicero (January 3, 106 BC - December 7, 43 BC) was an orator and statesman of Rome, and is generally considered the greatest Latin prose stylist.

His writings covers a wide field. Almost all of his philosophical writings are borrowed from Greek sources, and he is responsible for preserving much of that philosophy which might have been lost otherwise. His rhetorical works are masterpieces of the style and written in dialogue form.
