Pliny the blog

Filed under: admin — plinius @ 9:22 am

This blog in English is a parallell site to my Norwegian blog Plinius. I started it during a visit to Bucharest in the spring 2005, in order to publish in English from abroad.

You will also find library comments in English (before 2005) at my regular web site Post scriptum, which is hosted by my home institution, Oslo University College.

The younger Pliny was the nephew of Plinius (the older). He lived in the early Roman Empire, around 100 AD. He is best known for his colletion of literary letters (Epistolae) – which includes a set of letters exchanged with emperor Trajan, while Pliny served as an imperial delegate in Bithynia.
