MARCUS AURELIUS ANTONINUS was born on Ap A.D. His real name was M. Annius Verus, and he was sprung of a noble family which claimed descent from Numa, second King of Rome. Thus the most religious of emperors came of the blood of the most pious of early kings.   The Meditations of the Emperor Marcus Antoninus () by Marcus Aurelius Antoninus, translated by Arthur Spenser Loat Farquharson Book II For Farquharson's commentary on this book see the Commentary on Book II.

  It is unlikely that Marcus Aurelius ever intended the writings to be published and the work has no official title, so "Meditations" is one of several titles commonly assigned to the collection. The translation of The Meditations of the Emperor Marcus Aurelius Antoninus that is reproduced here is the first edition published in Glasgow by Robert Foulis in The edition was the only edition of the English translation published by the Foulis Press in the lifetime of Francis Hutcheson.

Publisher description: This book is a clear and concise introduction to the Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius Antoninus. His one major surviving work, often titled ‘meditations’ but literally translated simply as ‘to himself’, is a series of short, sometimes enigmatic reflections divided seemingly arbitrarily into twelve books and apparently written only to be read by him. Meditations is a series of personal writings by Marcus Aurelius, Roman Emperor – CE, setting forth his ideas on Stoic philosophy. Marcus Aurelius wrote the 12 books of the Meditations in Koine Greek as a source for his own guidance and self-improvement.
