The nephew of Gaius Plinius Secundus (Pliny the Elder), Pliny began practising law when he was 18. He was very successful in his practice and moved up the administration becoming a praetor, consul and a senator. Pliny also managed the military and senatorial treasuries and the drainage board of Rome. Sent to Bythynia by Trajan to investigate corruption in the municipal administration, he apparently died there. Pliny's literary contribution is his collection of private letters which provides an interesting insight into public and private life in Rome.
