An example of internet rumours that are wrong

I was looking up the life of Mestrius Plutarch, the greek historian, and this is what google returned:

  • Greek biographer who wrote Parallel Lives (46?-120 AD)  

  • (Lucius?) Mestrius Plutarchus (Greek: Πλούταρχος; c. 46 AD – 120 AD), better known in English as Plutarch, was a Greek historian, biographer, essayist, and Middle Platonist. …
  • A Greek biographer who wrote “parallel” lives of famous Romans and Greeks.

  • Greek biographer; his Parallel Lives was a source for much of English literature, including several of Shakespeare’s plays.,pageNum-43.html
  • A roman historian.  

    Gotta love that last one.
