Antoninus Pius

Marcus Cornelius Fronto, teacher of the emperor Antoninus Pius, Marcus Aurelius and Lucius Verus, came from the province of Numidia in northern Africa. His ancestors were probably the Italian settlers, but as he said about himself, he was a “Libyan born of Libyan nomads”.

In addition, he stated that it was difficult to establish any friendly relations with anyone in Rome, and the Latin did not take into account the feelings between friends.
