Antoninus, Marcus Aurelius: Meditations, v1, 07 Sept 2007.

Emperor Marcus Aurelius Antoninus: The Meditations of Marcus Aurelius.
Translated by George Long.

Stoic teachings, given by a Roman emperor.

I’ve always wondered how such an ethical man could produce such a badly-hehaved son (—Commodus — see either ‘Gladiator’, or Gibbon’s ‘Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire’).

R Wood has already posted a serviceable translation in Vol II of the Harvard Classic series. However, I have used Long’s for the last 25 years and grown fond of it. Since we already have several versions of Homer, I thought that it would be permissible to post this. I have omitted most of the unnecessary footnotes.

I haven’t the faintest idea which of the emperor’s names should properly be the surname on this forum. I’m going with Antoninus because this was his imperial name. But the mods may correct it if they prefer Aurelius or, less probably, Marcus.

Mmm.... Yummy Roman wisdom.... I won't be pulling down more material until tomorrow, but glad to see it here! (As well as in the Harvard classics.)
