Epigrams are written for those who are accustomed to be spectators at the games of Flora. You are ignorant, alas! you are ignorant of the fastidiousness of Rome, the mistress of the world; the sons of Man, believe me, are much too critical. Thence you will pass to the majestic Palatine edifice on the sacred hill, where glitters many a statue of the supreme ruler of the empire. And let not the ray-adorned mass of the Colossus detain you, a work which is proud of surpassing that of Rhodes.

Martial was born in a Roman colony in Spain

Martial was born in a Roman colony in Spain. Yet precisely how Martial lived between AD 65 and 80 is not known. When he first came to Rome, Martial lived in rather humble circumstances in a garret on the Quirinal Hill. After 34 years in Rome, Martial returned to Spain, where his last book was published, probably in AD 102. He died not much over a year later in his early 60s. Martial is virtually the creator of the modern epigram.
