Mestrius Plutarchus [Πλούταρχος] (~46 CE - 127 CE), better known in English as Plutarch, was a Greek historian, biographer, essayist, and Middle Platonist. Plutarch was born to a prominent family in Chaeronea, Boeotia Greece, a town about twenty miles east of Delphi.

His lifework consists of the Parallel Lives and the Moralia, the latter volume containing his extensive criticism of Epicureanism in the books "That Epicurus Actually Makes a Pleasant Life Impossible" Non posse suaaviter vivi secundum Epicurum and "Reply to Colotes in Defence of the Other Philosophers" Adversus Colotem.
