A noted orator and writer, he gave innovated the widely used styles of Ciceronian rhetoric and Ciceronian Latin. Though of equestrian rather than patrician origins, Cicero became a famous scholar and writer in his day, and numerous letters, orations, and other writings survive, as well as musings on philosophical topics.
