Gaius Plinius Secundus aka Pliny the Elder

A historian that lived during and observed the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius that would devastate yet preserve Pompeii and Herculaneum for nearly 1600 years.

Pliny the Elder due to the fact that not only did he live in Rome (a place I find intriguing and would like to visit) but also that he died at another location I am very interested in as well: Pompeii.
