No, much older. Actually, the "cunning linguist" part doesn't have anything to do with who it is. I just always leave "...cunning linguist" as part of my title since I was a linguistics major and am fluent in five languages.
BTW, the location goes along with the persona now, too. Although, technically his ashes are no longer there since the Visigoths sacked Rome in 410.

Good guess, but it's Marcus Aurelius, noted Stoic philosopher as well as, obviously, Roman Emperor. My sig is from his famous "Meditations."

on the more serious side by the way, for which this is definitely the wrong place i dont delve that much into romans i must admit. I know some of the big guys of course, like the hazard mentioned, but i read more about the 1200-1700 european period and the Persians troughout their days, suppose teachers did that to me, never liked Latin.

[edit]hmm, i must admit though, the name does ring a bell, but it seems a quite token name as well for a roman, i dont think i know him without cheating, definitely not from the philosophists view[/edit]
