Marcus Cornelius Fronto

Born in Numidia, he won himself a great fortune as an advocate being a master of rhetoric during his times, so much so that after a public career in Rome became the tutor for Marcus Aurelius and Lucius Verus.

So influential was his rhetorical and grammatical skills that a group of writers called the Frontoniani, who rejected the excess of Greek styles for a more fundamental and straightforward classic Latin feel. His Letters are a collection of pendantic instructional correspondences with his two imperial pupils. Provides a valuable picture of Marcus Aurelius.
