Poet
    (October 15, 70 BC-September 21, 19 BC)
    Birth name was Publius Vergilius Maro
    Wrote ‘The Aeneid,’ ‘The Eclogues’ and ‘The Georgics’
    He was effeminate (his nickname was ‘the Maiden’).
    He had a speech impediment.
    He kept a pet housefly.
    When the fly died, he gave it a funeral that cost the equivalent of $100,000.
    During the Middle Ages, people thought he was a sorcerer.
    He put subtle digs at his boss, the Emperor Octavian, in ‘The Aeneid.’
    He died before finishing the book.
    He is considered the greatest Roman poet.
    He came up with the concept ‘time flies’ (maybe when his pet fly died?).
    The Founding Fathers took the phrase ‘E pluribus unum’ from his writings (but it was from a salad recipe!).
    His property was confiscated by Roman soldiers.
    He may have been murdered when Octavian figured out he was being mocked in ‘The Aeneid.’
    Dante made him the main character in ‘The Divine Comedy.’
    He is also used as a character in a video game.
