Lucius Licinius Sura was an influential Roman Senator from Tarraco, a close friend of the Emperor Trajan and three times consul - in a period when three consulates were very rare for non-members of the Imperial family - in AD 93 (or perhaps 97), 102 and 107. Pliny the Younger wrote to L. Licinius Sura, asking his opinion on the existence of ghosts. [Letters of Pliny, Vol. VII, 27]
