Epictetus

Author Code: CEPI

Born: c. 55 AD - Hierapolis, Phrygia, Italy

Died: c. 135 AD - Nicopolis, Greece

As a young man, Epictetus was a slave. His real name is not known and the word epiktetos in Greek means "acquired". He was freed, but suffered from lameness. He taught stoicism at Rome and, although he wrote nothing himself, his pupil Arrian, transmitted his teachings in two works; The Discourses, of which four books survive, and the Enchiridion, a collection of his principles. Epictetus was expelled from Rome in 90 AD, together with other philosophers, by the emperor Domitian and spent the remainder of his life in Nicopolis.
