Celsus, 2nd century Roman philosopher, known mainly through his literary work The True Word, which was a polemic attack on Christianity. This work gives important insights into the state and strength of the early Christian Church. Celusus's philosophy is variously described as Epicurean, or sometimes Platonist, and his work is part of the history of agnosticism and atheism. His name is inscribed in Latin below the picture.
