1649 Works of Seneca Roman Mythology Elzevier - Lucius Annaeus Seneca - 1649. 
Lvgd. Batav. : Apud Elzevirios, 1649. - 1649 Works of Seneca Roman Mythology Elzevier Philosophy ROME Stoicism Latin 4v Lucius Annaeus Seneca (c. 4 BC AD 65) was a Roman Stoic philosopher, statesman, dramatist, and in one work humorist, of the Silver Age of Latin literature. Senecan tragedy refers to a set of ancient Roman tragedies. Ten of these plays exist, of which most likely eight were written by the Stoic philosopher and politician Lucius Annaeus Seneca. The group includes Hercules Furens, Medea, Troades, Phaedra, Agamemnon, Oedipus, Phoenissae, Thyestes, Hercules Oetaeus, and Octavia. Works attributed to Seneca include a dozen philosophical essays, one hundred and twenty-four letters dealing with moral issues, nine tragedies, and a satire, the attribution of which is disputed. His authorship of Hercules on Oeta has also been questioned. His writings expose traditional themes of Stoic philosophy: the universe is governed for the best by a rational providence; contentment is achieved through a simple, unperturbed life in accordance with nature and duty to the state; human suffering should be accepted and has a beneficial effect on the soul; study and learning are important.

In 1050, Richard de Reviers, an officer in the army of William the Bastard, Duke of Normandy, was granted title to the town in gratitude for his loyal service. He and all his descendants subsequently took the name of Vernon as their own. In 1066, the newly named Richard of Vernon fought alongside the Duke of Normandy (William the Conqueror) at the Battle of Hastings and settled in Britain. Some of this branch of the family later moved to America where, among other places, Mount Vernon is named after them. While the French branch of the Vernon family produced Saint Adjutor, patron saint of sailors and the nobility, the British branch flourished and produced a dynasty of admirals and other senior naval officers. The most famous of these was Admiral Edward Vernon (1684-1757).
