Little known probable and actual facts about Seneca

This article has moved:


  1. Another interesting fact is that Seneca's first name "Lucius" and the name of the person he addressed his letters and other writings to - Lucilius - both are derived from the Latin word "Lux" which means "light" (as in sunlight). Names like that were common at the time but it's tempting to speculate that the writings to "Lucilius" are actually directed to Seneca's younger self - not least because Lucilius is not mentioned anywhere outside of Seneca's writings.
