In the history of ancient Rome, appeared many famous figures. Many of them have been remembered as cruel tyrants, eg. Caligula, Nero or Caracalla. Others, on the other hand, became famous as great reformers: Augustus, Claudius, Marcus Aurelius, Diocletian, and Constantine the Great. Also, do not forget about the Roman commanders, who often rescued the Roman state from extermination.
The great creators of Roman culture who also significantly influenced the further development of the world were also remembered. I will present people who have become famous for their great deeds.
Gnaeus Pompeius (called "Magnus") was a Roman commander and politician; Caesar's great rival in the civil war. Pompey received his nickname Magnus from the contemporaries because of his great political and military successes and his services to Rome.
