Publius Vergilius Maro, commonly known as Virgil or Vergil, was a renowned Roman poet during the Augustan period. He is famous for three significant pieces of Latin literature, namely the Eclogues (also known as Bucolics), the Georgics, and the epic poem Aeneid. Additionally, some minor poems, which are compiled in the Appendix Vergiliana, are sometimes credited to him.
