Cicero was one of the most prolific Roman writers, and the number of his speeches, letters and treatises that have survived into the modern era is a testament to his admiration by successive generations.
Antony arranged to have him declared a public enemy. Cicero was caught and killed by Antony's soldiers, who are said to have cut off his head and right hand and brought them for display in Rome—Antony's revenge for Cicero's speeches and writings.
Cicero’s inventive command of Latin prose provideders explored Greek philosophy through Cicero’s translations, and many historians date the start of the Renaissance to Petrarch’s rediscovery of Cicero’s letters in 1345. Enlightenment thinkers including John Locke, David Hume, Montesquieu and Thomas Jefferson all borrowed thoughts and turns of phrase from Cicero. The first century critic Quintilian said that Cicero was “the name, not of a man, but of eloquence itself.”
