Outros nomes: Plinio il Giovane

Caio Plínio Cecílio Segundo , também conhecido como Plínio, o Jovem, o Moço ou o Novo, foi orador insígne , jurista, político, e governador imperial na Bitínia .Sobrinho-neto de Plínio, o Velho, que o adoptou, estava com o mesmo no dia da grande erupção do Vesúvio , mas não o acompanhou na viagem de barco até o vulcão em erupção que se revelaria mortal. Seus escritos sobre esse dia, no qual Pompeia se afogou em cinzas, são o principal documento escrito que versam a respeito de como sucedeu tal erupção.

A troca de cartas entre Plínio e o imperador Trajano, preservadas até os dias de hoje, são considerados um dos mais valiosos documentos para entender a organização e a vida cotidiana do império romano da época. Nelas, Plínio cita pela primeira vez o cristianismo num documento romano conhecido.
