Who is Aelian?
Aelian a.k.a. Claudius Aelianus, often seen as just Aelian, born at Praeneste, was a Roman author and teacher of rhetoric who flourished under Septimius Severus and probably outlived Elagabalus, who died in 222. He spoke Greek so perfectly that he was called "honey-tongued"; Roman-born, he preferred Greek authors, and wrote in a slightly archaizing Greek himself.
