He was born in Assisium between 50 and 45 BC, and he passed away soon after 15 BC. The remaining writings of Propertius consist of four volumes of Elegies (Elegiae). He had Maecenas as a patron and the emperor Augustus via Maecenas because he was friends with the poets Gallus and Virgil. Scholars now consider Propertius to be a significant poet, despite the fact that he was not as well-known in his own day as other Latin elegists.
