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.
A roman historian.
Gotta love that last one.
