Well, I wouldn’t call myself by so grand a name, but sure I like to read about Ancient Greece and Rome. I had a copy of The Gallic Wars that I picked up quite cheaply but then lost again, and a good ancient biography of Alexander the Great by Quintus Curtius Rufus.Later I started reading a book called The Age of Caesar: Five Roman Lives, which is a collection of five of the biographies from Plutarch’s Parallel Lives collection (the biographies are Caesar, Cicero, Mark Antony, Brutus, and Crassus.)
I also started reading Marcus Aurelius’ Meditations, and it was as I was learning about the teachers of the Academy of Plato that I found Xenocrates. Though none of his many books survive, I find what little we can glean of his views on metaphysics to be quite interesting. Until a week or so ago I wasn’t familiar with Diogenes Laertius, and out his Lives and Opinions of Eminent Philosophers I’ve only read that little section on Xenocrates.
