Outros nomes: Lucan

Marco Aneu Lucano , também conhecido em português como Lucano, foi um poeta romano, nascido na província da Bética. Apesar de sua vida curta, é tido como uma das figuras de maior destaque do período dito clássico do latim. Sua juventude, além de sua proficuidade, fizeram com que se destacasse entre os poetas da época. Sobrinho de Sêneca, fez parte da malograda conspiração de Pisão contra a vida do imperador Nero, e ao ser preso foi obrigado a se suicidar. Restou de sua extensa obra apenas uma epopeia inacabada, a Farsália.
