Marcus Herennius was consul of the Roman Republic in 93 BC. He became consul in 93 BC, after defeating Lucius Marcius Philippus in the consular election for 93 BC.[1] The oldest extant Latin book on rhetoric, the Rhetorica ad Herennium (originally believed to have been authored by Cicero, but of currently uncertain origins), was addressed to Marcus Herennius in the First Century BC and remained one of the most widely used texts for teaching rhetoric until the Reneissance.
