Marcus Tullius Cicero (3 January 106 BCE – 7 December 43 BCE), sometimes anglicized as Tully, was a Roman philosopher, statesman, lawyer, orator, political theorist, consul and constitutionalist. He came from a wealthy municipal family of the equestrian order, and is widely considered one of Rome’s greatest orators and prose stylists.

Cicero wrote about Simonides of Ceos and the Method of Loci in his work, De Oratore.
