 Claudian, the Latin poet of great affairs, flourished during the joint reigns of the brothers Honorius, the Emperor in the West, and Arcadius, ruler in the East. Though a pagan, he became a professional court-poet, composing for Christian rulers panegyrics that have given us important knowledge of Honorius’ times.
