Overview

Gaius Suetonius Tranquillus, better known as Suetonius (ca. 69/75 – after 130), was an Ancient Roman historian during who lived at a time when the Roman Empire was still relatively new. He wrote about the daily life in Rome, politics, and biographies of famous poets and other historians. But he’s best remembered for his biographies of the Twelve Caesars, starting with Julius Caesar and ending at Domitian.

De Illustribus Grammaticis ("Lives Of The Grammarians"); is Suetonius’ small biography covering 20 brief lives of Rome’s best grammarians. It seems to have survived in complete form, unlike much of Suetonius’ work.
