“In the year 41 CE, Seneca was banished by the emperor Claudius for supposedly sleeping with Julia Livilla, the sister of Caligula. We don’t know if he was completely innocent of the accusation, but we do know that the incident was hardly an exemplar of justice. The historian Suetonius tells us that Seneca’s ‘charge was vague and the accused was given no opportunity to defend himself.’”

Ryan explains how Seneca’s fortune lead him to great depths and great heights, and reads The Daily Stoic’s entry of the day, on today’s Daily Stoic Podcast.
