Pliny's polished and wonderfully descriptive letters--discussing personal, public, and literary concerns--offer a picture of his own large circle of friends (which included Tacitus, Martial, and Suetonius) and of Roman society in all its diversity. Justly famous in this collection are two letters in which he describes in detail the eruption of Vesuvius in A.D. 79. Book 10 contains his correspondence with the emperor Trajan about conditions in Bithynia and Pontus; it includes the earliest pagan accounts of Christians and their rites.
