Fronto

Fronto

(Marcus Cornelius Fronto) (frŏn`tō), fl. 2d cent., Roman teacher and rhetorician, b. Numidia, Africa. Antoninus Pius made him consul in 143. A successful teacher and government official, Fronto was an admirer of the early Latin writers and tried unsuccessfully to bring about a renaissance. His extant correspondence (2 vol, 1919–20, Loeb Classical Library) with Marcus Aurelius, Lucius Verus, Emperor Antoninus Pius, and others, is invaluable for insights into imperial life.
