Bust Marcus Aurelius-base with plaque. Sculpture that recreates a bust of Marcus Aurelius made from an original statue dating back to the 2nd century BC, which is on display at the Museum of Ephesus, Turkey.

Marcus Aurelius (121 AD-180 AD), the philosopher-emperor, is one of the so-called “Five Good Emperors” of the Roman Empire. He ruled jointly with co-emperor Lucius Verus from 161 to 180 AD and is also remembered as one of the most notable Stoic philosophers. His best-known work is the “Meditations,” a diary in which he reflects his thoughts, focused on the constant pursuit of virtue and wisdom and their implementation in everyday life.

Marcus Aurelius faced numerous significant challenges during his reign, including military conflicts, epidemics, and internal crises. In the midst of difficulties, he was able to maintain the stability of the empire, despite threats both external and internal. Thanks to Stoic philosophy, he was able to cope with the pressures of governance, following the tenets of Stoicism that exhort to accept adversities with serenity and to cultivate virtues such as generosity and justice, self-discipline, and moderation.

This philosopher-emperor continues to be admired today for his personal coherence and integrity, and his moral and ethical standards in a critical period of Roman history. Marcus Aurelius has come down to us as an example of a leader capable of exercising political power from a practical philosophical perspective, based on personal reflection that leads to a constant pursuit of inner perfection and the implementation of virtues.
