Apicius (1st century)

The world's oldest surviving cookbook, De Re Coquinaria ("On Cookery"), is attributed to the 1st century (?) Roman, Apicius.

Not much is known about Apicius, and there is some dispute as to when he lived. There are several Romans of this name who lived in the period from the 2nd century B.C. to the 2nd century A.D.
