Born: March 1, 40 AD, in Augusta Bilbilis (now Calatayud, Spain); Died: ca. AD--Marcus Valerius Martialis, known in English as Martial, was a Latin poet from Hispania (the Iberian Peninsula) best known for his twelve books of Epigrams, published in Rome between AD 86 and , during the reigns of the emperors Domitian, Nerva and Trajan/5.   Of all the Roman poets, Martial is perhaps the most concerned with his material medium; the physical book itself is a major character in the the context of epigram-writing, this is not so unusual; as a genre, epigram is traditionally self-conscious of its development from ‘stone to book’.Author: Sarah Blake.
